You pull the #1 plug out and stick your finger in the hole. Rotate the engine by hand until you feel air blowing out of the hole, it should be coming up to the timing marks on the balancer, set it to 0 degrees. Put the plug back in. Then put the distributor in with the rotor button pointing at the #1 plug wire, making sure you have the distibutor oriented so that you have room to rotate it in order to time it once it starts. That should be all you need to do.

clockwise and the rotor button is the end of the rotor(the endmost tip) or just turn the motor untill the balancer reads 0 degrees then out he distributer in untill it points to #1 you have to turn it to the left some because the rotor will slide( you have to over compensate the rotor position) once u get it running set the timming to 11-12 degrees advanced with the spout connector unpluged
