You have probably figured it out by now, but in case you haven't, the sbc timing marks on the dampner will line up with the timing tab on both #1 power stroke and #6 power stroke. Pull the #1 spark plug and crank the engine by hand until you feel pressure on your finger to let you know its on the #1 compression stroke. Slowly keep rotating the crank and as the timing mark on the dampner approaches the timing tab, it will be on the right stroke to set your timing(dist rotor pointing to #1 post). If not, remove dist. and rotate it so that when you put it back in, its pointing towards the #1 terminal on the cap.
