Question about Cars & Trucks
The only way I can think of right now is to remove the spark plug and turn the engine until number one piston is at top dead center. You may be able to use a piece of copper wie, about #14 or larger, to determine when the piston is a top dead center. You will then have to determine if both valves are closed. I have used a spark plug adapter with a supply of low pressure air to see if there is any resistance to air coming in. If both valves are not closed, rotate the engine 180 degrees and that should be the firing position for Number One. If you have not previously removed the distributor, the rotor will be pointing at the Number one position. Replace the cap and you should be able to determine the Number One Plug wire position.

you have a problem with the timing i suspect ,an older person like yours truely here would sort this in seconds with vehicle in front of them so i suggest you ask a local old pensioner mechanic like myself to have a look for you ,these youngsters would have no idea as their is no plug to connect the computer too ,let alone allow for the play on the distributor in setting up the points to get the dwell right,best of british from spain with your classic car project from
