Should be right there and be in time.

it is a timing chain. i didn't rotate the crank to put the cam dot at 6 but i used a straightedge and lined them up. i wish i would have though. when i set the rotor to point at the #1 post, the truck runs really bad. i have to move the distributor counterclock a bit to smooth it out, but it still misses.
