This is how I always set my timing when dropping in a dizzy. First bring it up on the compression stroke then TDC. Drop the dizzy in make sure it seats all the way down. For firing purposes, turn the motor over by hand until you get to your desired timing. Take the #1 spark plug and ground it and turn the dizzy every so slightly until it sparks. Once it zaps, stop and tighten down the dizzy. Start it and time it with a light.
