you can rotate the distributor cap until you hear that it is not idling rough any longer but you can only do that for a few degrees from where you8 start...otherwise you will have to pull the timing cover off of the front of the motor near the bottom ther timing chain connects your crank and your cam and you will have to rotate them until the arrows are aligned if you didnt pu8ll it off without making reference marks then you will just have to guess and see where the timing is supposed to be.
