replaced distributor now cranks but wont start, could i have installed wrong?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

as described in question.

1 Answer


Probably installed wrong. #1 piston needs to be at TDC on the compression stroke. If it is not on the compression stroke the distributor will be 180° out. Once you have that, the distributor is installed so the rotor points to the #1 tower of the distributor cap.
