factory way: (see link above)
If you are timing engine with #4 TDC cam pulley mark up to cover and crank pulley mark to oil pump mark. ( as it should be)
Mark #4 wire on dist,instead of #1 wire.I did mine the first way with no problems engine runs perfect.
the #1 way will result in belt whip. of course it will run, but not for 100k.
#4 , rotate 360 degrees , back to #1 and set dizzy.
To time the dizzy, see my link but set crank to TDC #1 firing.
(assuming dizzy or head was removed or messed with by PO)
remove dizzy, reinsert so that rotor is in position shown here.
pretty clear , out of FSM. uh?
now make sure the gears are meshed such that the bolt in top is in the middle of its slot and that the rotor is exactly at #1 tower post.
lock it down. Cap on . wires at the ready.
you are almost done , except the fine tuning of ignition timing with a light.
lay the wires down on the dizzy 1 , 3, 4, 2 in the CCW direction.
Counter clock wise ( anti clockwise for others)
you can time the dizzy 4 ways, and it will run perfect.
but only one way is the factory way.
so the next poor slob doesnt look at the Dizzy and freak out.
