Mine is at 6 as well? It was anyways, it's out now & trying to figure it out. It was installed incorrectly, set the timing but not the ignition timing, at least not properly ciz is wasn't on the #1 cylinder? Only 1 right way & 1 wrong eay to install the distributor isn't there?

There is no specific place #1 has to be, as was stated. IT's all relative to where the rotor is facing when the #1 piston is at TDC. There might be a common direction when Ford put the distributors in the engine, but if it's been removed, that is all out. I try and get it back in about the same position as it gives good room for adjustment, concerning the vacuum advance. You want to have ample room to turn the distributor without hitting anything.

This just happened to me this weekend. I thought it was a dead cell in my battery.

First: Pull #1 spark plug (disconnect negative battery cable) - one closest to the front of the truck.

Second: Placed 15/16th (?) socket over crank pulley while placing a finger in the #1 spark plug hole.

Third: Rotate engine until you feel compression pushing against finger.

Fourth: Place something long, skinny and non-metallic in #1 piston spark plug hole (I used a stick).

Fifth: Rotate engine until the piece of non-metallic material cycles up and back down just alittle bit (This will be Top Dead Center [TDC]).

Sixth: Pull distributor cap and look where the rotor button is facing (This will be number 1 for your firing order).

Seventh: Follow clockwise 153626 as your firing order off the new number 1 cylinder location.

Eight: Hook back up the battery and start the truck.

Ninth: Get a timing light to set base timing at 10*.
