Hi there. Different expert here.

I need a bit more information; can you answer the following questions?

  • When you say "set timing", do you mean you want to set ignition or valve timing?
  • What are you doing, replacing the distributor or the timing chain?

To set the distributor on time, first bring number 1 cylinder to TDC making sure the marks on the crank pulley and the timing cover are lined up (see attached graphic); then drop the distributor in so the rotor points to the cylinder #1 mark on the cam position sensor (see attached graphic).

Please let me know if you need anything else.
