.. The cam/distributor rotate ONCE for each TWO revolutions of the crankshaft... this means the rotor can be pointed at #1 sparkplug terminal, but the crankshaft actually ONE full turn off while reading TDC on the pointer/damper...

.. When crank is proper, both valves on #1 cylinder will be closed, and the cylinder will hold air if pressurized with an air hose... (don't let the crank rotate from the pressure on the piston)... then rotate distributor till rotor pointing at #1...

.. Make sure gas in carb. (hold temp. tank above carb. till it's full)

.. Make sure spark at plugs as engine is rotated...
