Motor tdc, distributor rotor pointed at 1 on the cap. Then fine tube with a timing light while running with the timing connector disconnected on the firewall usually. Sometimes the connector is under the passenger side of the dash

I dont have the timing tab. My damper marks are 2:00-5:00. About right?
