I have my 258 on an engine stand. Just got it back from being rebuilt. how do I make sure its at TDC. Once Its at TDC how do I know the proper drop in for the distributor?
Thanks for the help
 
#1 piston will be at top of stroke and both vales will be closed, that would be compression stroke.
I see you have the mopar system and that is unique with regards to the distributor, when the system is installed new with the kit the distributor comes "pinned" in the correct spot and after droping it in you remove the pin. You will need to contact hesco for advice on correctly reinstalling it, they have a forum board that you can post on or make the phone call.
 
Thanks again. I called Hesco today and they walked me through it. Its a little different do to the Mopar Injection kit. Also got the engine back into the jeep. Cant wait to get her up and runing again.
thanks again
