Hello, i have included all the info you should need to install dist. and set timing properly. i hope this was helpfull.

IGNITION TIMING PROCEDURE
Connect tachometer and an inductive timing light to number one spark plug wire.
Disconnect and plug distributor vacuum advance hose.
it sounds like you have the timing gears set correctly, here is a picture of gears set right. but with the gears lined up this is not number one compression stroke. here is some info on this.
Fig. 34. The valve timing marks shown in Fig. 34, do not indicate TDC compression stroke for No. 1 cylinder, which is used during distributor installation. If distributor was removed, install timing chain and sprockets, aligning timing marks, Fig. 34, then rotate engine until No. 1 cylinder is on compression and camshaft timing mark is 180°from valve timing position shown in Fig. 34. Install distributor.
