Answer 1
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. -
