Pull plug out of #1 cylinder ... rotate engine untill piston is at the very top. Line up the distributor until it just at 1 position... put plug back in and crank ,,, if no start up are probable 180 degrees out (2 revolutions of the engine = 1 revolution of the distributor) so pull the plug out and rotate the engine 1 revolution .. then try again

How do I rotate engine

easiest way is to remove all the spark plugs (engine is real easy to turn with no compression) and turn the belt pulley by hand

I'm going to do this.thank you

Do I take the belt off
