Quote: A quick way to verify valve timing is to set the crank to TDC by lining up the timing notch on the HB with the "T" on the cover. Double check this by pulling number one plug to verify the piston is on top. This will produce one of two things on the camshaft side. Hopefully the mark on the camshaft sprocket is lined up with the dark link on the timing chain right at the 3 o'clock position, and you can be absolutely positive your valve timing is right on.
I pulled the valve cover and it is just as you describe it, the mark on the sprocket is right at 3 o'clock, and the distrubitor rotor was at 4 o'clock, so I pulled the dizzy, lined it back up and installed it in there so its pointing to #1 on the cap (10 o'clock) I guess it looks like the whole time I had the distributor off time, first it was one tooth off, and then I accidently had it at #4 TDC and put the dizzy back in 180 off as I suspected. Now it is all correct and I'm waiting for a jump start from a freind because my battery is dead.
Hopefully I will get this thing running before I reach "Rock Warrior"
