Help Me Get it Started! PLEASE!

My Son-in-Law is finishing up my new engine replacement,He told me before he got started that he did not know how to time the engine to get it started, New distributor will be put in,new plug wires, I do not know where they go nor does he, do not wont to put put Number 1 wire on the number 3 and so, I think I understand TDC but not sure how to do it! If any you smart guys live close to Russellville,Arkansas sure could use the help, not a rich guy on disability but could buy you some gas. Thanks for understanding, My home phone number is 1-479-293-0080.

If your replacement engine is speced out the same as the original it should have the 13726548 firing order. #1 is the first piston on the Passenger side ,To find TDC pull the plug on #1 with your finger or thumb covering the plug hole turn the engine over by hand with a socket on the crank bolt till the compression pops your finger out of the hole ( your on the compression stroke ), then place a screwdriver in the plug hole and make contact with the piston and very slowly and gently continue turning engine over you will feel the piston rise ( make sure that the screwdriver doesn't catch or jam )when you feel it start to drop back down stop, bump it back till you get back to the top of the stroke and you will be at TDC.
