I am replacing the distributor on my 1980 CJ7 six cylinder any pointers and how can I check new distributor position after replacement?
:confused:
 
I'm not very familiar with that year, but i use the vacuum advance as a housing starting point, and bring motor to TDC #1 and get the cap and rotor pointed the same direction. I put 3 marks in various places to help, better to have too many than not enough.
 
I pointed the vacuum hose fitting towards the alternator then went from there. A good distributor makes a big diffence in performance.
 
Great link Dave, as always JYG explaines it better than I ever could.
