I installed a new distributor, but I can't seem to get it timed.
You will need to set the crankshaft to No. 1 top dead center or TDC. There should be marks on the crank pulley that indicates where this is. If you have already done this, you may be 180 degrees out. This often happens because it is two crank revolutions for every one cam revolution. If you still need help, Your Mechanic offers mobile auto repairs that can help you get your distributor properly timed.
