A couple of things to keep in mind. your crank turns twice as much as the rotor on the distributor turns. make sure your on the compression stroke of #1. Also your rotor will turn about another inch once the dist. engages the pump shaft so keep that in mind when lining up the gear and the rotor to cap. I believe there is like 12 rotor positions that the dist. gears allow. would be nice if there were 8. Once you find the perfect gear tooth, rotate the crank and it should drop right in. good luck.
