Timing

The best way for a newbe to be sure that the engine is at tdc,,,,,Remove the valve cover, turn the engine over and watch the intake valve open then close. continue until you reach the tdc mark on the balancer. Install your distributor at the #1 location and then turn it about 3/4" counter clock wise....

Fire the engine and set the timing with a light..
