Best Answer

if u are asking how to do it without a timing light, try as follows.. First pull #1 spark plug out of head. Then: turn engin over till compression comes out of sparkplug hole (indicating compression stroke) next, line up timing mark to proper notch. (should be listed on emission sheet under hood) such as 8 degrees btdc. Now... turn on ignition switch to Run ( not Start ) after that: loosen distributor and then: put #1 spark plug in boot for plug wire and ground the plug to the block. Finally, Turn distributor until plug fires! do final step 5 or 6 times to extablish exact position of fire. Now, tightne cistributor, install plug, snd your ready to go! Happy motoring!
