This is very true however, most engine builders and reference books recommend assembly with the crank at 12 o'clock and the cam at 6 o'clock simply because it makes it harder to screw it up.

When doing this they have never called back with a distributor out 180 deg..... It's a little more work but for the less skilled it works every time.
Like I said before, "If you're distributor rotor is pointing towards the firewall when you're engine is at top dead center on the compression stroke on #1 cylinder then you need to pull the distributor out and rotate it 180*."

In regards to the manifold vacuum, the more groos lift on the cam the less manifold pressure you will have and to correct it you might need a seperate vacuum tank

I called Comp Cams and talked to them. They said I should have around 10" of vacuum. I also called Edelbrock and asked about the timing mark on the cam gear of their gear drive. It's not in the best place it looks like it's between the teeth. So I moved it to the next tooth. I'm waiting on the silicone to dry and I'll get back on it and fire it up and see what happens. Oh by the way, Edelbrock support was no help at all. The guy just told me "they're all that way".

I'm hoping this will fix my less than 5" of vacuum.
