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!

If you set the distributor and wired it then just start it up. Once running set timing with a timing light.

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.
