advance the timing to 36,if you have to move the wires in the cap,then do it

Yep reset the dist, may take a few trys. Try having the timing pointer at about 30 deg BTDC and drop in the dist so the vacuum advance is mid way from limits, may need a large slotted srew driver to turn the oil pump shaft so the dist engages in the correct manner and the rotor ends up near #1 tower.

Way easier to move the wires counter-clockwise in the cap than to pull the dizzy. Thanks Vinnie.
