Thumbs up

You have it out of time , I doubt if you can fix it but I will tell you how if you want to try , take out the first spark plug on the side of the steering wheel in the front, this piston will have to be on top on the compression stroke you will have to turn the engine , if you can do that the take off the distributor cap look at the point on the roter button that is the wire that will be #1 then you will have to clockwise line up the plug wires 18436572 the first plug is #1 the one on the other side from it is #2 then so on the last one on the other side from #1 is #8 that is all I know to tell you but if I were you I would just leave it alone !!
he will be happy that you tried I know I would

Hell if my wife tried to put in an HEI, I would just lay down and die so she could have all my insurance money.
