If necessary, using a flat blade screwdriver, turn the oil pump gear shaft until the slot is slightly past the 11 o'clock position.
Install the rotor.
Without engaging the distributor gear into the cam gear, position the distributor into the hole in the engine block. Be sure that the distributor gasket is installed.
Visually line up the hold-down ear of the distributor housing with the hold-down clamp hole.
Turn the rotor to the 4 o'clock position.
Slide the distributor down into the block until it seats. Keep the hold-down ear aligned with the hold-down clamp bolt hole.
The rotor should be in the 5 o'clock position with the trailing edge of the rotor blade lined up with the scribe mark in the distributor housing.
Install the distributor hold-down clamp bolt and tighten 9.5-14 lb.ft. (13-19 Nm).
Install the distributor cap and connect the distributor electrical connector.
Thanks Guys I think I have it all figured out,.. but its hard to tell 100% the new cam is kinda lumpy,... its a bit slower to rev,.. and before some idle adjustment it was sitting at 400RPM idle,.. still searching for vacume leaks,.. finish up the exaust and such,.. but i was hoping I could plug a timing light in and confirm I have it in the right spot.
