Pull distributor out, roll engine over 360 to t.d.c. comp. not t.d.c.exhaust like you might have it now.

yes you can be 1/2 turn off with the distributor, remember the piston comes up to top twice on a four stroke! and wires must circle cap same direction as rotor spins! no 1 is usually marked on cap at base of terminal
