Best Answer

Start the engine and make sure it's up to normal operating temp. Make sure everything is turned off(radio, a/c, fan blower, rear defrost etc.) If your distributor has a vacum hose, disconnect it and plug the filter. Hook up your timing light and check your marks. If the timing is off, you'll need to loosen the distributor hold down bolts and turn the distributor clockwise to advance it or counter clockwise to retard it. Once you get it set, tighten the bolts and re-check it. Reconnect your vacuum line and drive on. If you can't get the timing set, you need to look for vacuum leaks somewhere on the intake. I don't know the spec on that car, but it should be on a label under the hood.
