order is 1-3-4-2
FIRST!! if you have an electric fan disconnect it cause they can kick on at any time and it'll be a nasty mess you'll have to clean up!!
make sure your car is at normal operating temp and your idle is correct,
make sure you car is in park (automatic) or neutral (stick) and the e-brake is ON!!!
the timing marks on this model are on the flywheel and you can see them through a timing check hole located in your bellhousing.
pull you vacuum advance hose off of your dist. (you dont have to plug it)
and attach your timing light to where ever you need to attach it to!
with your car off loosen the dist. just enough to where you can move it with your have but not loose enough to where it will move freely!!
on early models on the side of your distributor body there will be a set of #'s stamped there!
early 84' models have 0 237 002 080
late 84' and 85' models have 0 237 002 096
the early 84 has a symbol that looks like a upside down OT with that line through the middle!!
the later models have what looks like a Zo symbol but it'll kind of look like Z degrees!
if the marks are aligned correctly through the hole than it's fin but if they're not then you'll have to turn your dist. a little either way!!
when everything looks good tighten everything back up but make sure you double check everything you've done just to make sure it's gonna stay that way!!
