Find timing marks 1 on cranshaft and a staionary one mounted to

engine around crankshaft area Highlight appropriate mark with

chaulk Disconnect #1 spark plug and install timing light between

plug wire and spark plug Connect timing light to battery terminals

Disconnect and plug vacuum advance line if so equipped Start engine

and observe spark flash on timing marks Adjust distributor

accordingly to align marks
