Question about Ford F-250
I have been trying to set my distributor, but need to get the correct way of during it. No 1 is at TDC. Engine rotates, then starts, then stalls. I need to know which way or how many turns I turn the distributor to get the running right. I had to change out the gears at the end of my distributor. Can anyone help?

Lots of reading and videos for you here. Basically, there are timing marks on the harmonic balancer. You work with those. You need a timing light once you have the engine running.

You need a timing light and the timing marks line whited. get timing as best as you can and adjust using the timing light. if you have the gears set right it should time up just fine, but without a timing light you will never get the timing right.

Remove # 1 plug and stick your finger in the hole, roll the engine over by hand, when you start to feel pressure in the cylinder you are near TDC, just check the crank pulley marks to zero it to TDC mark on pulley.

SOURCE: Distributor and timing
Remove your #1 cylinder spark plug, then put a screwdriver into the hole and manually turn the engine until the piston comes to the top of the cylinder. From there, point the rotor of the distributor to the #1 spark plug wire (you may again may have to turn the oil pump drive shaft). From there, your engine should start, and you can adjust your timing properly.
