Get number one to TDC compression stroke and look down the hole for the distributor, you will see the shaft that drives the oil pump.
Set the slot in that shaft as per this picture.

You also have to set the rotor 45 degrees anticlockwise to itīs number one firing position, it rotates clockwise going in as the helical gears mesh.
