Problem: I took out the distributor out of my 3.4L with out any markings. Now that it is time to put it back in I don't have a clue how to put the darn thing back in so it would be timed right.

How do I time a distributor with out any markings?

This is not fiero specific. But normally you put the number one cylinder at TDC then drop the distributor in with the rotor pointed at the number one cylinder on the cap. This will get it close enough to start and then use a light to time it. If it is different for fieros someone please chime in. Thanks Van

Sorry about that, but that's what I've done. The engine isn't in yet but I'll give that a try!
Thanks Zach

I just realized what you wrote. The 3.4 doesnt have a distributor. It uses coil packs. So either the 3.4 is a miss print or your talking about a 2.8?? anyway the process is the same for all engines. Van

With the help of a friend, hold your finger over the #1 plug hole and have your friend rotate the crank to bring it to top dead center ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE. The pressure will build and push against your finger.
Drop the distributor in with the rotor pointing at #1.
Should be close enough to start.
