Hey Jerry==Since it is not new it is possible that it has been changed from factory. To find out where it is, if it is factory or not, pull #1 spark plug ,and the coil wire so it won't start, and stick your finger on the plug hole and have someone bump the starter to see when the piston comes up on compression stroke. When you feel preasure, turn the engine with the belts and pull the timing marks up to tdc. Pull the dist cap and where the rotor is pointing is #1 on the cap .the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the dist turns clockwise. GoodluckJoe

No the distributor gear that is on the end of the distributor is to small for the big block cam shaft.

on this old distributor there is a cap that holds the wires in place on the distributor. Is there a trick to remove top cap?

There was a 396 available in all Chevy trucks from 1968 - 1970.
