Now that you know what your timing is currently set to, and you have looked up what it should be set at, you are ready to adjust the distributor to correct any differences.
Grab the distributor and, while watching the timing mark as explained previously, rotate it slowly to one side or the other. Continue rotating until the timing mark is in the correct position. Refer to step 4 for how to read the timing mark.
You must turn very slowly, otherwise you can go outside of the acceptable timing range and severely damage your engine.
Carefully tighten the 9/16 locking bolt, and remove the wrench, making sure not to accidently rotate the distributor or contact the spinning pulley and belt.
