On a 389 set the cam gear at 6 o'clock and the crank gear at 12 o'clock. Then turn the engine to where both gears are at 12 o'clock and set the distributor. Set the distributor to where #1 is pointing towards the area where the throttle cable comes through the firewall. This should get you up and running. Goat

Your welcome. What kind of Pontiac are you working on anyway? Stock or slightly modified or all out? Goat
