When installing the timing gears you install them-timing chain gear at 6:00 and crank gear at 12:00. Actually this is the exhaust stroke, turn the crank one revolution, the crank gear will be at 12:00, the timing chain gear will be at 12:00. You can then drop the distributor in pointing at #1 this is the compression stroke. You could have stop on 6:00 & 12:00 and dropped the distributor in on #6 like delawarebill said.
