Thanks to all. Yes, the damper mark was right at zero and the distributor rotor was pointing at #1. After I did the first eight, I rotated one revolution so the rotor was pointed at #6. From what everyone says, it sounds as though I just have them way too tight. I'll try it again in the morning. I'll stop at the "any resistance" point and then go 1/2 turn. Just to be certain, when you say 1/2 turn you are talking about 180 degrees, right. In other words, two 90 degree turns on the ratchet. Thanks.
