Question about 2007 Jeep Scout
Take off the distributor cap and look at the rotor. with the engine set the way you have it, the rotor should either be pointing to the block or the right front headlight. (In the general direction).
If it is pointing towards the engine turn the crank one more complete turn and it should point towards the light. Make a mark on the outside housing of the distributor exactly where the rotor points. Put the cap back on and the tower for #1 ignition wire should line up with the mark you made. If it is a 4.0 or four cylinder, there is no distributor adjustment (the computer adjusts timing) So, if the rotor is not lined up with the wire tower, you will need to remove the distributor and turn it one or more teeth in the direction you need to go and then repeat the alignment process again.
