If you have good fire to your sparkplugs I would bring No1piston near the radiator to TDC on the compression stroke. Once you have No1 piston at tdc remove the distributor cap and look to see where the rotor is pointing. It should be at the No1 plug tower. Hal
PS: If this looks ok I would try a pull start.

I looked today after work; I had just stuck the plug wires on anywhere; I put them on correctly but one was too short wo I'll have to make a new wire. I predict startup when I get time to proceed;this weekend probably.

If those plug wires were on there before and now 1 is too short, try changing it with one of the longer ones. It should fit one of the plugs near the distributor. They don't shrink from sitting LOL Just my thoughts, Keith

You're right, maybe friday afternoon. I had a 550 mile day today; at least the weather was great. There is a huge sugar mill at White Castle, Louisiana, and it was going full-steam (literally)when I drove by.
