Set it to TDC#1, with the timing window mark lined up to IGN. Install the distributor with the rotor pointing to #1. Wire up the ignition and place the coil wire in the coil, with the cap end near the cylinder head, or other grounded metal. Turn on the ignition switch and Rotate the distributor body until the coil sparks. Tighten the hold downs, you should start and run normally, and the timing will be very close.
