god morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist
the timing is checked with a scan tool not with a timing light. thats why there is no mark on the crank pulley. the distributor is actually the cam sensor and is set to 0 degrees at 1000 rpm. it is verified once again with a scan tool.
please dont forget to rate me as it is the only way I get paid for my efforts
ok, thats not in your original post.
bring the engine up to number 1 top dead center compression. to be sure, remove number 1 plug and hand turn the motor until you feel pressure out the cylinder and use a coat hanger to monitor the movement of the piston until it is at the top. that is where you ned to be.
then drop the distributor in with the rotor pointing to number 1 cylinder wire inside the cap.
I see you re posted. you never even responded for me to continue helping you
