As a quick check for TDC on your FE, take out the damper bolt and you'll be able to see the keyway. At TDC it will be straight down. It's not absolutely perfect, but if you drop the distributor in on #1, you can at least get it started. When guessing on the timing, more advanced is better than more retarded. Good luck, Bob C
