the Haynes manual shows a round distributor tadpole says flat, but in any case a mechanism has got to "distribute" the sparks on time...you have a distributor...if flat...someone's got to tell the WWW~

one could slowly turn the motor and test for spark on each in order~....then generate their own chart

A fancy right-angle distributor cap...it still has a rotor...open up the cap and look at the order there right in front of you~
