Once it is in and keyed to the cam teeth, you simply turn the housing
until the rotor lines up with a little mark on the housing at TDC. If
you can't find the mark, grab a dist cap and, roughly, the rotor should
point to the #1 cylinder connection.
This will only be close, but the engine should run. Now you use a
timing light and set the idle timing to 12 deg BTDC.
