    so here it is my dizzie went bad and i got a brand new one right, but i was in such as rush when i took the old one off i forgot to mark where the rotor was, stupid right, theres two ways it can go in but if i put it in wrong ill either be 180 degrees in or 180 degrees out, anyone know the easiest way to figure this out, and i know theres a timing notch and dots by the pulleys but i can barely see them, someone please help. i dont want to mess up the timing

    I dont think it matters. There is a notch in the cam that distributor goes into.

    you cant be off when installing the distributor. those 2 notches are offset slightly to one side. youll either force it in wrong and destroy something, or itll slide right in correctly. just take a look at the slots that it slides into, youll see how it goes.
