So I am going to put in a whole new distributor. Is there anything i need to know about setting up the timing of it? I know that you can adjust the timing by how you position it, but when I actually put it in does the rotor or button need to be put in a certain spot? Thanks! :dumb:

In order to do the timing, you have to put the car in diagnostic mode. If I remember right, you bend a paper clip and put one end in the TEN and one end in GND in your diagnostic port.

When it comes to keying the dizzy to the cam, the worst you can do is be 180* off. You will know immediately on start-up if off. I would mark the original location of dizzy on the head and the position of rotor before removal and just put back in that position.

kind of hard to do since it only goes in one way, unless you are a complete idiot and mega force it in 180 out. And you wont know on start up because it wont start.
