We have installed our new 302 and we are trying to educate ourselves on how best to start her up for the first time. I tried to search without much luck. Can you supply a link to help us walk through this step by step? Thanks in advance!
Set the engine to TDC on the compression stroke, timing pointer at 0 degrees. Mark on the distributor body where the #1 spark plug wire attaches. Drop the distributor in so that it points directly at the point. Fire it up then advance to 6 degrees or so with timing light, for starters.
