if you have removed the distributor,you will need to bring number one cylinder up to TDC,where both tappet are closed and number one cylinder in all the way to the top of the cylinder,with the number #1 plug out you can verify it is!after you have that done,then look at the distributor cap,most caps on top are marked where number one plug wire should go,drop the the distributor down in the hole moving rotor to point where number # 1 cylinder in at on cap close as you can,you may have to turn oil pump shaft down in distributor hole,use a screw drive flat blade a long one to turn slot to correspond with distributors rotoe to place on number one ,then set distributor in hole where it will go down in slot to line up with where the rotor points to number one on cap,then you should be close to time,this should get you where the motor will start,by adjusting the position of the distributor by turning a little each way,but you will need to have a scan tool placed on it to get it to the closes point where the check engine light will go out,or to be reset!

Where are the timing marks located on a Chevy van g20 57l?

If this is a 305/350/400 small block Take the lead from the coil to the distributor "OFF" to prevent the engine from firing. This will take two people or a remote starter. Turn the engine over until the mark on the tortional damper lines up with the center or O mark on the timing tab on the front of the engine fastened to the crankcase front cover and the engine is in the number one firing position. This may be determined by placing fingers on the nuber one valve as the mark on the damper comes near the O mark on the crankshaft front cover.If the valves are not moving the engine is in the number one firing position.If the valves move as the mark comes up to the timing tab the engine is in number 6 position and should be rotated one more complete turn to bring it to the number one firing position. Also take the cover off of the distributor to determine that the rotor is positioned properly pointing to the number one spark plug then follow the firing order for that engine should be 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 Wayne
