I don't know the correct way but I bolt my dist. in and take the cap off, pull up and down on the button to make sure you have a little play. If not shim it with more gaskets. I've never had any dealings with that engine though so maybe someone else knows more about it. Good luck.

Huge amount of difference!!! It was just plain shocking how much more rear % you get with going alum...Even if a guy can not afford 18 deg or sb2 stuff, he'd be better off saving for the alum block as opposed to the heads...My opinion anyways, especially where the D55 tire rule comes into play...
Hope this helps...Wonder why I can't get a response on the sparg plug deal...Especially since some of the engine builders on here like to advertise there stuff for sale for free, guess they figure they can't get free advise *grin*...Guess I can't buy are recommend there services that I read on here to anyone else....Fair is Fair...have a good one...hey will they let ya put that Alum block in that Mod *grin*
