Put the number one piston at TDC (top dead center) Pull the cover off the distributor and check to see if the rotor is pointed at the number 1 plug wire. If not check to see if its directly accross from number 1 if so pull the distibutor out and turn the rotor button around 180 degrees. The distibutor can only go in 2 ways. Dead on the money or 180 degrees out. This info is assuming you havent replaced the timing chain or anything that effects factory time settings.

SOURCE: I need a serpentine belt diagram for a 2004 dodge ram 1500

By chance, have you looked on the underside of your hood, most, if not all vehicles have the diagram there, it should be a white sticker with the pulleys and everything.
