Pull number 1 spark plug.

Bring the timing mark to "0" TDC (top dead center) on the harmonic balancer and timing tag/tab.

Check to make sure number 1 piston is all the way up.

Pull the distributor cap loose and lift it up to make sure the rotor is pointing at number 1.

If not: You can pull the dist, stich a long screwdriver in and turn the oil pump shaft a little in the direction it needs to go. You may be a tooth or two off.

OR: you can jump the wires on the cap one position in the direction you need to go. So that the rotor is now pointing at the terminal number 1 is on.

try starting it again.

(note, the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2)
(Driver's side is 1-3-5-7, Pass is 2-4-6-8)
