SOURCE: I'm replacing the head gasket
Bring the crank to TDC while WATCHING CAREFULLY the camshaft, making SURE that the pistons are moving in the correct sequence as the valve train. Once you have the #1 piston on TDC, Set up your valve train with what looks to be the most logical position. Then and only then should you consider the factory spec for setting the lead/lag time of the valve train, in degrees. Hope this helps....accordianman

Hi there.... I'm assuming you have the head back on. the easiest way is to try and line up the timing marks an the pulleys and install the timing belt. If you have done this and the timing marks line up as they should, you can take the sparkplug out of the #1 cylinder and manually turn the engine over till you can feel air pressure coming out of the plug hole. continue turning the engine till you can't feel anymore pressure. Don't go too far cause then you'll be on the intake stroke and you'll have to turn the engine the opposite way. with the #1 cylinder at TDC, take you distirbutor and cap and figure out what position the rotor should be at for #1 plug. Mark the distributor somewhere where that position is ( where the #1post on the cap should be). Finally insert the distributor and try to get the rotor as close to that position as possible. remember when you install the distributor, The rotor position will move due to the gear set up. Once you have the distributor istalled, you can adjust the distributor for timing by turning it. Hope this helps you out. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask..
