You need a timing light and there is a bolt that holds the distributor to the motor and if you undo it you can advance the timing or ****** the timing there should be a spot on one of the pulleys that will flicker under the light from the timing light you will see the lines fliker you want o get the marks as close to perfect as possiple if you took out th distribotor you have to make sure you have the number one cylinder in the right place and that th distributor in in the right place when you insert it and spin it down in the hole

I dont know were to set the distributor at? zero?


You need a timing light and you need to find timing mark on the harmonic balancer with the car run point the light at the balancer and you should the number on it then adjusted the distributor if it isn't already there.Some vehicles have a brown wire by the brake booster that you have to disconnect before you can set the timing like a G-M-C or Chevy truck.

I need to set the distributor timing


These vehicles have to have the timing set while hooked up to a diagnostic computer as they are self setting once they have been zeroed with the diag, computer. if you try to set it on your own you will just be fighting the vehicles control module (computer)
