Rob, Slider here. Turn your crank untill the line pointd to #1 . pull the left (drivers) side valve cover. Fell the #1 valves. are they both loose? That should put you at #1 tdc. stab the dist. there so that the rotor points to the #1
wire out of the cap. Call me if you need. 588-9982

I can to spell. Dumb fingers.
Rob turn the crank until it lines up with the tdc mark on the tab. Then pull the valve cover , make sure #1 valves are both loose. (indicateds closed #1) Now stab the dist so that it points to #1 wire when seated.

Question

Have you checked your timing mark at top dead center to see if lines up with the timing Mark? Chevy had two harmonic balencers some of them had the tdc at the 12 oclock position and some had it at 2oclock Timing covers the same way. Make sure your timing cover matches your balancer. Hope this helps with your problem.
