Hello I will help you with your question,
With the #1 cylinder at TDC on the COMPRESSION stroke remove the distributor and install so the rotor points to the #1 plug wire terminal.
Let me know if you have tried this. YOu may be at TDC on the exhaust stroke so check that it is the compression stroke by putting your finger over the spark plug hole or a piece of wet paper towel. When it blows out align the balancer to the TDC mark
Let me know how I can help you
Yes you need the head installed have you not installed it yet?
OK, use the procedure below to install the belt once you get the head on and you will be at TDC compression on #1 and the distributor will line up to #1 plug wire
