Thanks Russ, I'll try this , I hope it did not take anything electrical out!
The new distributor will need to be installed in the correct "time" to the camshaft. Look at the online repair information at autozone.com - here is the link: http://bit.ly/online_repair_manuals.
Thanks, Russ link did not work but I got on Autozone site. Had info.but not what I need. I know bring to tdc on compression but what mark to use, there is 2 on vibration dampner and crank sensor.
Yes, two marks! Looking at the engine from the front. One mark should be at about 2 o-clock and line up with a mark on the timing cover. The second mark will be at about 5 o-clock and line up with a mark on the lower part of the timing cover. That should put the #1 clyinder on TDC of the compression stroke. I hope this helps.
