Re: Timing and TDC ??? Putting in Distributor
It's usually easiest to bump the starter over until the rotor points to the firewall and put a mark there. You can then take it out. It's a good idea to mark the body of the distrbutor here also. Then put it back in with your two marks lined up and it should work. Basically you're putting the distributor in - the exact same way you took it out. Make sure you don't turn the motor when you change the intake. If you do, then you will have to retime it, with number 1 at TDC. And by the way at TDC firing the number one cylinder, both valves will be closed.
