How to teset computer after replacing distributer

Is the check engine light on and you want to turn it off and reset it? A code scanner can clear the codes, but the light will illuminate again if the problem wasn't addressed.

When you change the distributor you have to set it to 0 degrees of camshaft retard. It can only be read with certain sacn tools. You can't just stab it in there and it work. You can't timing it with a test light. You can get it close with the old school method of being on TDC and lining it up that way
