yup just drop the dist back in 180 deg turn of the rotor should be close to get it running, then go each way 1 tooth.

distributor was off 180, flames out the carb. Also the firing order was off. We pulled the dist, got number one TDC by hand then dropped the dist back in pointing to 1, re-did the firing order. She fired right up and idles good. Right on.
