Need to bring #1 piston up on the compression stroke to TDC. Then you drop the distributor in place with the rotor pointing to #1 spark plug. Start it up by moving the distributor if need be to get it started, let it warm up and re-time it with a timing light.

Right and don't forget to remove the spout connector before you start the engine or you will never get the timing right. When it is set to specs shut it off and reinstall the connector.
