Put the #1 piston at TDC. Pull the Distributor cap off (2 clips). Mark the position of the rotor relative to the distributor. Remove the timing adjusting nut located to the rear of the engine just behind the distributor. Pull it out (it twists as it comes out). DO NOT move the Veh or turn the engine over, as this will make correct timing that much harder. Instalation is the reverse procedure. Adjust timing with timing light.
