SOURCE: putting distributor back in the right way

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.

You are correct there is no lash adjustment, just the torque. However you do have to rotate the crankshaft balancer to position the crankshaft balancer alignment mark 57-63 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise from the engine front cover alignment tab. No further adjustment is required. By the way I have 22 Ft. Lbs for that torque (probably doesn't matter much) I hope this helps.

Need head bolt,intake upper and lower and rocker arm torque lbs.

Head bolts--------- 22 ft lbs.
Intake upper------ 18 ft lbs.
Intake lower------- 10 ft lbs. Tighten vertical bolts first, the diagonal bolts, failure to do this will result in an oil leak.
As far as the rocker arm bolts, they have to be adjusted with the valves closed, tighten down just enough to turn the push rods with your fingers with slight tension.
This is out of a Technical Specifications Manual.
