All you need to do to replace the distributor is to line the rotor up with #1 cylinder on the cap and then remove the assembly making sure to line the rotor back up with the #1 cylinder . Once you have done that then all you need to do is check your timing with a timing light and you should be fine.

The 0 should be top dead center but if you line the distributor up before you pull it by placing the rotor on the #1 spark plug you should be okay to remove it and reinstall it back in the same position.
