Distributor install question...

Well, I checked my manual, just says to mark the distributor and rotor, before you take it out. Well, mine is already out, so I need to put it back in. I'm assuming take it to TDC, drop the dizzy in, and line up the rotor with #1? Does anyone have a step-by-step on installing one?

I know it's no biggie, just haven't done one in a LOT of years...

Thanks in advance,

R

Didn't have time to read through it but I think it is pretty universal.

Great! It's pretty much as I figured it was, but this is pretty comprehensive - I have it bookmarked, now, also!

Thanks!
