do you have a timing light to do this job? if so it is as simple as losening the dissy (so you can just move it) from its mounts and aiming you timing light at the crank pulley and turning the dissy until the timing light shows the correct advance (all of this while idling engine). If you dont have a timing light i would suggest getting one (beg borrow) if not you can try tuning by ear but this is not easy and time consuming as you need to tune at idle then drive and the re adjust and repeat until it all hums, so try the timing light option.
