Re: Name is Gary, hope to find some answers here.
No real reason to not run....As said above, turn over by hand with a finger over the #1 plug hole to find TDC.
Check rotor points at #1
Put plug back in
Leave distributor semi loose and mark the base to go back to later
Have someone crank while you turn the distributor slowly one direction and see if you get anything
Nothing ? go back to mark
Try cranking again and turn the other way, slowly, and see IF you get anything.
IF it starts, get a timing light on it quick.
