Okay. Turn the engine untill you have the crank mark lined up with the 0 on the pointer. At that point, look at the valves on #1 cylinder. They should both be closed, or in the "up" position. If they aren't, you'll have to turn it one revolution, to get to compression stroke. Now, you're ready to put the distributor in. Take the top off the cap, and position it in the hole, so that the rotor lines up with #1 on the distributor cap. If it's a newer one, take a close look inside at where #1 actually is because the newer ones are off set a little. Now, tighten the cap on, and hook up the plug wires, one at a time in the proper order and rotation. When you try to start it, it should run where it is, but you may have to turn the distributor slightly one direction or the other to make it start. Try your best to keep it running for 20 minutes or so the first time so your gaskets will set. ( not always an easy task when the valves aren't adjusted, and antifreeze can still vapour lock on you) If you need to know more, let me know.

Testimonial: "Thank you , but still hoping i had it at tdc to start with when i set the rocker arms but checked comp good on all but #1 and #3 "
That sounds like a valve problem. If the valve guide drops it will allow oil down onto the valve and it will keep the valve from seating right in the closed position. That is most likely the problem. A head gasket will not usually cause a compression problem. It could also possibly be a piston ring blown but unlikely. Either way the head is going to have to come off and from there the problem will be easy to diagnose.

Just so I learn something
Spark plugs -wear ,seldom misfire
Injectors and Coils-need to be component
tested,before I would replace
Testing-- is using a meter,oscilloscope,etc.
Same on O2 Sensor,scope is only way to
see switching time.
I would suggest something common to
multi cyl misfires.
Because you get a code for #1,doesn't mean
that coil is bad. You may have to walk a new
coil from one cyl to the next.
CPS Sensor ?
Is there a cam sensor on that engine?
