Hook up to timing light, start vehicle. loosen distributor hold down bolt. aim timing light at timing mark. rotate distributor either way untill the proper mark lines up, then tighten hold down clamp, shut off vehicle then unhook timing light. rpms should be at least 650 to 700, for automatic tranny.

318 engine stalls, shut key off completely and will start instantly and run just fine. any ideas whats wrong

Year,make and model? Since you said 318, Dodge. Older. Check the power and ground points(check for corrosion). Loose connections. Coils, wires and ignition modules won't cause this. Could be an ignition switch also, most likely not.

Why not eBay? you may be able to find a "lightly" used harness from an appropriate dodge or Chrysler product that uses your engines?
Try for a Repair manual or electrical repair segment for an appropriate Chrysler product with your engine.
