      Yeah so #1 is the first cylinder.
      So do you have the plug wire going from cylinder 1 to the top of the cap?
      Because the the firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. With 1 being at the top of the cap.

      ok ... If I am at TDC what position should the rotor button be? I have pics but cant find my camera cable.
      Should it be directly lined up with position number 1? Right now its def. not right I've moved it a few times.
      Whuch joo guys think?

      You can't turn the distributor its pinned to be non adjustable on an ABA engine.
      The rotor should line up with the notch in the top of the distributor housing , when all your timing marks for your timing belt are set correctly. If they aren't you need to loosen the belt and retime it correctly.
