    Hello everyone call me an idiot cause I know I am. I removed my distributor without marking it and without putting #1 cylinder on TDC. Can someone guide me on what to do to reinstall it now correctly. Thank you

    You’ll need to bar the engine over so #1 cylinder is TDC.
    Next you’ll need to goggle a diagram of your distributor that shows the firing positions.
    Now depending if it is a notched type (which will drop straight in ) or helical style ( you’ll need to rotate before or after the number 1 fire point to have it line up correctly when you seat the distributor)
