Question about Cars & Trucks
I've set the cam to No 1 according mark on pulley set No1 piston TDC according to (O)mark on flywheel set distributor to fire on No1 (mark on dist) but not sure as to position of dist in cyl.head
The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.

This is the tricky part... as I mentioned in my solution, When you install the distributor, the shaft will turn because of the gears. You are going to have to pull the distributor just enough so that the gears aren't meshing together and turn the shaft.take notice of which way the shaft turns when you remove the distributor. Once the gears aren't meshing, turn the shaft to the #1 position and go a little past the #1 position in the opposite way that the shaft turned.install the distributor and see where the rotor sits then.if it is still not in the right place, pull it again and go one gear tooth at a time until the rotor lines up with the #1 position. Hope this helps. If you still need more info or clarification, don't hesitate to ask.

Turn crank so that timing mark on front pulley is at 0 degrees.
Remove the timing cover and you should see a mark for the cam to line up with.
You want the cam lobes on No.1 cylinder to be pointing away from the followers wether they be rockers above cam or buckets below. This will be the compression stroke.
Once the cam timing is set you can recheck the distributor. It should point to No.1.
