Question about 1983 Chevrolet Chevette
To be perfectly sure where the number 1 cylinder fire is at this point remove the valve cover, remove the #1 spark plug, remove the distributor cap, clean the crank to identify clearly the crankshaft marking on the crankshaft harmonic balancer wheel.
First step: Slowly turn the crank by hand until the line on the crank lines up to the zero timing mark...if you are on #1 the rotor in the distributor should be facing the #1 segmant in the distrbutor caps firing sequence, to verify further both intake and exhaust valve rocker arms should be in the valve closed positions in the #1 cylinder, the piston should be all the way to the top opf dead center(carefully insert a long skinny screw driver into the #1 spark plug hole to feel the pistons top travel while being sure the valves are both closed as explained above).
With all that checking out you are now exactly on top dead center in the #1 firing order sequence of your valve timing.
