Answers :

Start by removing the number one spark plug. you will need to get that cylinder up to its compression stroke and and to the top of the cylinder by turning the engine over and feeling the air rush out of the hole. once piston is at the top set the distributor into its place making sure that rotor is pointing at the plug wire position for the number one cylinder after its fully seated into position.. it may take a couple stabs as the rotor will turn on its own while being dropped into place.. be sure it seats all the way down cause the distributor also runs the oil pump.

I have a 1992 s10 Blazer equipt with a 4.3 liter. I have removed the timing chain and gears to be replaced.. I am not certain on how to set the gears in the proper order.I have lined the bottom gear in the top/up position with the #1 tdc. The top gear was set in the down position when I installed this timing set the first time and this was not correct. I kept the bottom gear in the same position(at the top).
