Re: Install Distributor
I always looked at the distributor shaft end, with the rotor pointed at the # 1 cylinder. Note: the location of the oil pump drive. Then look in the engine and turn oil pump drive with a long screwdriver, to the "mirror image" of what the end of your distributor looked like. I say "mirror image" so when you flip the distributor over to drop it in, the drives will line up.
