You're going about it all wrong. Set nuimber one cylinder on TDC compression stroke, then using the timing mark, advance the mark about 10*. Now stab your dist in with the rotor pointing at whichever tower you want to be number one on the cap. Start with that tower and wire the cap in this order, clockwise: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Snug up the dist just a little to prevent it from spinning around when you crank. After it fires up set the timing to whatever specs you like.
