    should be the same as any chevy V8 dist install you need to index the rotor on the dist to the #1 terminal on the cap, then place the engine on #1 tdc and remember that the dist will turn about a 1/4 turn as you install it down and the gears mesh with the cam gear the prob is there is no adjustability clockwise once it is in place due to the computer adjusting the timing by itself so you may have to do it a couple of time before it works itself into the right location.
