Hey Rick==You can have either a Buick or Olds engine.If the dist is up front it is a 'buick and if it is at the rear it is an olds. Both fire the same 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 The Buick dist turns clockwise and the olds turns counter -clockwise. Take #1 spark plug out {On boith engines it is the first plug on the drivers side}.Remove the coil wire and stick your finger in the plug hole and have someone bump the starter until you feel it comming up on compression. Now turn the engine over with the fan belts so that the timing mark is on TDC.Remove the dist cap and the rotor will be pointing to #1 cylinder. This procedure will work with any engine but the firing order and dist rotation will be different. Goodluck Joe
