SOURCE: I have a 1972 Jeep CJ5, 304 V8 somebody decided to

What they mean is that the rotor should point towards the spot on the distributor cap that the #1 spark plug wire attaches to.

So the basic process is this:

It is easiest to do with all your spark plugs out, but at least remove the #1 spark plug. rotate the engine till the #1 piston is fully up on the compression stroke( TDC or top dead center) and verify the timing mark on your crankshaft pulley is where it should be. Then install the distributor with the rotor pointing to where the #1 spark plug wire hooks up to the cap. This will get you close to the final spot, and that will work for you. Just be carefull not to get it off one tooth on the distributor gear, as you might still think it is close, but the distributor will have to be rotated to the extreme adjustment to get the timing close.

Hope you get it back together!

SOURCE: upgrade by78 CJ Jeep 304 V8, 3 sp tranny

old cherokee jeeps(amc years) with the 360 had an adapter plate to mount a gm turbo 350 trannie, these may b hard to find now, im not sure but i think those years have the same bellhousing as ford, except for very minor difference, if you get a trannie from that era there is only one hole you have to drill out, you need the trens from that era cause the boss is cast into the housing,,,, now ive only done the auto to manual shift, not the other way round, it may have been that the bellhousing from jeep fit the ford trannie np205 heavy truck 3/4 ton , back when you could swap bell housings
