When installing a distributor in a 350 chev does should the number 1 piston be on the compression stroke or intake stroke at TDC or does it matter?

#1 should be up for compression. Both valves would be closed. Addendum: The above answer is correct except for one thing; #1 MUST be at the top of the compression stroke if you want the engine to run, and the distributor MUST be pointing at #1 plug wire. Recognize that the distributor will turn slightly as it drops down into the cam gear, so make certain that you accommodate for that. You want the rotor to be pointing to the center of #1 when the distributor is in place.

How do you install a ford distributor?
