Question about Suzuki Sidekick
Bring no1 piston to TDC firing on the timing mark on the balancer and line the rotor button point to under no1 plug lead and place the distributor in the block . As it goes in the rotor will turn out of position so lift up the distributor until you can reposition the rotor just forward of the position so that when the distributor is full in the rotor lines up with no1 plug lead. The movement is from the helix on the drive gears and you have to compensate for that when positioning the rotor button.. leave the retaining clamp just loose enough to turn the body of the distributor . After fitting all the leads in the correct firing order . start the engine and using a timing light move the distributor body until you get the timing mark on the required degrees advanced ( normally around 12 ) and then lock up the clamp.
