A friend replaced the distributor on my 1995 Cadillac

Customer Question

A friend replaced the distributor on my 1995 Cadillac DeVille. The inside of the distributor had literally fallen apart into pieces. Now it won't start. I need to know what steps I need to follow to get the timing set properly so it will start. And once running, correct procedure to set timing.
