Lets go over this AGAIN.

With the # 1 piston,at TOP DEAD CENTER,on the compression stroke,point the distributer rotor to the right of the # 1 firing position(rotor),(as youre looking down)look at the bottom of the dist.there will be a boob sticking out,line the oil pump slot up with this boob ,install distributer,when installed,the rotor will turn,and point at the #1 plug wire (of course,) this is after you put the dist cap on,im assumiing you marked the dist,to show where #1 is,if you didnt,look at the dist cap,see where #1 wire is,point rotor to the right .
