As long as the rotor is pointing towards the number 1 cylinder plug wire at TDC on the compression stroke, it can be anywhere on the dizzy you want it to be. Just make sure everything after it is in the correct order and you're good.

Yep, it's gotta be lined up like I described or the car won't run.

Start over and find TDC on cylinder number one. Look where the rotor is pointing. Loosen the distributor and put the cap on it and adjust it until the rotor is directly under the post you want #1 to be. Then put your wires on counter clock wise 13726548. This should get you close enough to start it. After you start the car, use a timing light to set your correct timing.

The post that you are going to use as number one on the cap. Theoretically, you can drop the distributor in wherever you want as long as you use a post that is directly above it for #1 when you are at top dead center. Most people/Factory location point the rotor to the top left area (when looking at it from the front) for #1 when the distributor is dropped in. It keeps your plug wire neater.
