SOURCE: where is the rotory button

When #1 piston is up the rotor can be pointing to 2 different places. For every 1 turn on the crankshaft the camshaft turns 2 times. To be sure that the rotor is in the right position to fire #1 spark plug you need to remove the valve cover and watch the valves as you turn the engine. To be correctly positioned the intake valves have to be open and stasrting to close as you turn the crank to align the timing marks (TDC). As you pass TDC the intake valves are closed and the exhaust valves start to open. Back up so the timing marks line up and this is where the rotor is going to fire #1. If this is not what you are seeing, then simply rotate the engine 1 complete turn and you should see it happen then.

Unless you have changed the timing chain or removed the distributor this shouldn't be necessary.Perhaps if you suspect the truck has "jumped her time" then this could help to confirm. If you are doing routine maintenance, plugs, wires, cap and rotor then you don't need to be concerned that the timing marks line up but not the rotor button. Hope this helps.
