Typically, when setting the timing initially, you would want the rotor to point to the #1 wire on the cap.

First of all, you cant point a rotor button. Rotor buttons are mounted inside the distributor cap. You can point the rotor. The rotor is whats mounted on the distributor shaft and turns with the shaft. Remove the #1 spark plug. Disable ignition so engine doesnt start. With a helper bumping the starter, put your finger over the #1 spark plug hole and have helper bump starter until you feel air blowing by your finger. Now, using a large wrench or socket, manually turn the crankshaft and line up the timing marks to TDC. Your rotor should be pointing directly at TDC on cylinder #1. transman
