I installed my distributor and I am having problems. All the marks are
correct. The harmonic is at zero, the valves on #1 are closed and yet
when I drop in the distributor and turn over the engine and pull the
cap off the dist. is out 180 degress. So I do everything the same
again, the harmonic, the #1 cylinder valves. Turn the engine over and
again it's out 180 degrees.
The valves will be almost closed on the top dead center stroke of the
exhaust stroke other than the overlap of the cam. If you have the valve
cover off turn it over watch for intake valve to open, after it closes when
the piston comes up to TDC it is ready to fire. Put the dist in then on
number one and fire it up.
