Has anyone installed a new distributor on a 5S FE? I pulled the old one out, did an ohm test and found out that it was bad. Ordered a new one. How do you know if the new one is installed correctly? The factory manual goes through the entire procedure of getting to tdc by pulling half the right side of the motor apart. The engine was not turned since pulling the dizzy so I should be able to put the new one back in. Problem for me is there's a 50-50 chance of getting it backwards. Timing would be 180 deg off? What's going to happen? It's either going to start or not. Would anything be damaged if off 180 deg. There has to be a trick for this.
