With the timming marks lined up make sure that cylinder 1 is at top dead center on the compresion stroke, then as you lower the distributer back in make sure that the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug wire post on the distributor cap,mark the distributor where the #1 post is since you can't install it with the cap on.

SOURCE: I need the timing marks diagram for a 2.5L Nissan Altima

Ignore me if I am wrong, but I believe the timing is ECU defined and non-adjustable. To confirm, it has a crank position sensor.

How can I time a distributor without a timing light or wheel on a skid steer?

is this a points distributor
place the timing mark at the desired position before tdc compression stroke ( normally around 10 degrees )
se the points to correct gap
turn on the ignition and move the distributor body against direction of rotation until the points just open ( noise or spark across points
tighten the distributor at this position
replace cap and it will start
alight when used will show the timing to be almost at that setting
if pointless distributor
set the timing mark as described and the set the apex of the exciter at the mark on the small pickup in the distributor
That again will be the timing mark setting
if it is an efi engine
the ecm unit will determine the timing of the engine from the crank position sensor

How to replace the distributor and line it up the correct way

With ignition OFF, remove the dist cap , do not remove HT leads from cap or plugs just move to one side ,turn the crankshaft with a spanner on the crank pulley drive nut until the rotor arm is pointing directly towards the front of the vehicle, mark the position of the rotor on the distributor body with a dab of paint and also mark the position of the body on the engine block infront of the distrbutor,remove the distributor , i believe it's just 2 screws that clamp it in place ,transfer the mark from old dist to the new dist and aling the rotor to this mark, then fit the new dist to engine and aligne the marks from the new dist to the mark on the engine block and tighten down , refit the dist cap , to get an exact distributor timing you should now use a timing light to check the timing marks line up , if they are slightly out just very slowly turn the distributer until the marks are aligned , hope this is of help

How do i set a distributor on a 1999 chevy 454 with a crank sensor

Use a timing light to align the timing mark in the dampener to the marks on the timing chain cover. The degree number is on a sticker somewhere under the hood. Using the timing light with the engine running, slowly rotate the distributor so the mark in the dampener moves to the correct timing mark on the timing chain cover. You may need to wipe road dirt off the marks to read them.

I have installed a new distributor and lost the right crank position. I cranked the engine to TDC but after replacing the distributor back in facing the #1 cylinder I attempted to start it but didn

I am not sure about your model but for a six cylinder firing order usually is 153624. Since you said that before removing the old distributor you cranked the engine to TDC and on fitting the new distributor you should put the rotor in position of cylinder 1 and to be fitted on the correct advance position.But you said that you don't have any spark you mean from the distributor to the spark plugs? If so is not your timing marks but something is wrong wit the connector to distributor or the coil or distributor itself. Carry furthe checks about if you can or ask an expert to do so.
