    CaptainCaveman: Thanks for the reply. I rotated the engine about 10 times (with the heads on) using several methods described by other members, and found TDC , then pulled the heads and cam, etc. Since the distibutor was lined up, the cam and crank sprockets were lined up, and the piston physically at TDC, I am sure that I am pretty close to the correct position to fabricate my timing pointer. I won't be degreeing my camshaft but should be able to get everything lined up for the cam installation. Assuming that I can advance the distibutor enough to properly time the engine, I think it should be okay; if not, then I guess I will have to degree the cam. Can you give me a summary of the "overlap" process? I am not familiar with it. Thanks much for your help.
