From what I see in my manual,
1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.
2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)
On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.
I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.

It is important that you turn the engine in the correct direction. To achieve TDC firing stroke remove spark plugs insert a plasic straw into the number one spark plug hole and proceed to turn the engine over observe the straw keep turn ing the motor until the straw travels upward when it stops moving up stop turning, you will know you are at tdc by looking at the timing marks down on the crankshaft pulley the notch on the pulley should line up exactly to the number zero on the timing plate at the front lower part of the motor very close to the crankshaft pulley turn the motor over again and again until you line up the notch on pulley with the number zero you may need to clean the numbers off on the timing plate or front cover.

Line up the crank gear timing straight up, line up the cam gear timig mark straight down (so the marks are closest to each other, or facing each other). the distributor will be firing #4.

Might be as simply as a new battery. Remove battery from vehicle and bring it to a repair shop or Sears Auto Center (they are the battery, and charging system Kings) and have them load test the battery. If battery fails purchase a new battery . Once the vehicle is up and running take it back to them and have them test the charging system and determine whether the vehicle has battery drain .
