    How do you set timing?? Anybody know?

    Okay so my 96 Z28 died on me on the highway the other day. It cranks but will not start up. My dad is a mechanic and has been one for like 30 years give or take but has never worked on an Lt1 Camaro. We pulled the distributor off and the cap and rotor were broken so that was the problem. I ordered MSD Cap and Rotor but my dad doesnt know how the distributor goes back on so the timing is not off.

    I noticed there is 3 round spots on the distributor and one has an extra lil hole on the end and i wonder if this has something to do with it.

    Anybody done this before??

    Anybody know how to do this?
    help would be appreciated. thanks guys

    I think there is a dowel that goes into it so it can only go on one way.
