Default How do I replace my distributor ?

My 94 F150 300 6 cyl. quit on me and while I was working on it I pulled the distributor out. How do I put it back in time ?

Also I need a book on this truck. Which is better Chilton's or Hayne's ?

Thanks.

Oh No.......pull the spark plug on the number one spark plug (passenger side front) stick a screwdriver in there and rotate the engine by hand (turning the crank with breakerbar) to TDC of the compression stroke. Drop the distributor in slowly making sure that the rotor points to the number one spot on the cap. That should get you pretty close...you'll need a timing light to get it right. Pull the spout connector out and adjust the timing to 10*BTDC if you want to go back to stock settings.

I'm not sure on the 300 but I think it's next to the distributor.... It might be grey instead of black like this one shows:

If it's not by the distributor, it'd next to the driver front fender...like this:

Thinkin he will have a remotely mounted TFI Module on his fenderwell by 94'. If so, look for your SPOUT Connector w/ plug there.
