Pull the no. 1 plug. stick your thumb or finger into the edge of the spark plug hole (don't shove it way in, just enough to kinda plug the hole). With a remote starter, or helper at the key, bump the engine until you feel the compression blast past your thumb. Then throw a 5/16th socket on the crank bolt and rotate the engine clockwise (as you're facing the engine) until the timing mark is at about 6 deg. BTDC. Now examine where the rotor is pointing. It should be pointing EXACTLY at the 1post of the distributor.

I agree with the other poster, though, to check and make sure you have spark at the plugs first. If the MSD6-AL is not hooked up right, you will get no spark, which means no start.
