    nope it will flop around, get the dist close on the gears for the timming and then bump the motor with the starter and the dist will fall right in then go set your timming and rock and roll.

    Big fires?? start with ten to 12 degrees, check your total also, if it is too much you can get a advance plate out of an early eighties 302 truck, they limit the total with the slot and it has a 10 and 15 stamped on the slots where as yours probably has a 15 and 16?? easy to change. You have electronic ignition?

    the wire hangin starts fires , Jeff ,that sounds familiar ,no pun intended .Like blown said ,start with 10 initial and 36 total.BBF are a bitch to start if you have too much initial timing. Do you have the marine dist ? They would have a light primary and a heavy secondary spring. The secondary spring would have an elliptic shape hookup on the post. I hope you'll make the kelowna pokerrun before you fry your setup eek!
