Originally what general location should the rotor be pointing to be on #1 ? Id like to install the distributor in a factory like location then wire the cap.
Basicly, when the distributor is in the factory location, what O'clock postion should the rotor be pointing if standing in front of the car looking back toward the windsheild? I have a Mallory mechanical advance distributor.

Gary,
Since you have a mechanical advance dist. with no vacuum pot hanging on it, you can put #1 anywhere you want as long as the cap is wire to that location. Since you want to keep it in close proximity of original, most everyone I've seen or worked on, the #1 is in the 1 o'clock position with the carb being at 12 o'clock.

Thanks Mike, 1 O'clock postion is what I thought in the past. It's been awhile since the last Mustang, and even longer since I took one out and re-installed a distributor. Thats where I have mine now (@1:00)...just wanted to refresh my memory and to hear the same from someone else
