Yes you can but .. this is the best way to set distributor: Remove the front spark plug on the drivers side..put finger in plug bore and have helper bump the starter until you feel compression..now put timing mark on crank balancer at 0 ..now remove and set distributor with rotor pointing toward # 1 on distributor cap..now put plug wires in firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 ('clock wise' ) if V/8... Can't tell, you did not say what engine!.. Probably find vid on YouTube!! .... OR...Copy and paste this link below, it's the exact same thing!!
