76\'s which way does your distributor face? Just wondering which way your distributor faces. I was looking at a 79 and it's cap(?) that says AC Delco was parrallel to the front grill and the vacume advance almost facing forward. Mine sits with the cap facing the drivers side headlight and the vacume advance facing where the passenger would sit. I haven't checked for top dead center yet to see if my timming marks are right, but my timing is set on 8· like the manual says.
