    I don't know if you got it in and running yet but here is how i do it. To find TDC on the compression stroke before installing the Dist. Take #1 spark plug out and have someone crank over the engine by hand with your thumb over the spark plug hole. When you feel the compression on your thumb you are on the compression stroke. Look at the balacer as you feel the compression and bring it to the TDC mark. Now install the Dist with the cap off so that you can see the rotor. You want the rotor at about 4:30 or 5:00 position. You can adjust the dist. drive/oil pump rod with a long screw driver to get it phased in. Remember as you drop the dist. the gears mesh with the CAM gear and advance the rotor a litle more. Once you get the rotor at the proper phase you are on Number 1 at TDC. Now that tower on the cap should correspond with or close to the rotor at 4:30 or'5:00. That is where you are going to put #1 wire. Next going in a clockwise position on the cap after #1 is 8,4,3,6,5,7,2. I assume you know where #1 is. It is on the drivers side very front cylinder closest to the radiator. 1,3,5,7 is on the drivers side. 2,4,6,8 is on the pass side with #2 being closest to the radiator. So now you know where to put your wires. Yes make sure the pink hot wire is hooked up to the coil on the cap. Once you get it started you may need to advance the timing a little to keep it running as to break in the cam. You should keep it running at about 2k for 20 min. to break in the cam. Hope this helps and is not too confusing.
