You will need to follow the firing order when adjusting the valves. You will need a timing light to set the timing and also the timing spec. This usually involves warming engine to normal operating temp. clean harmonic balancer and mark the timing mark with some white paint loosen the the distributor hold down bolt hook up timing light and turn distributor until the timing mark on the balancer lines up with the timing mark on the timing cover then tighten the holding bolt back down.
