Ok taking into consideration what 95Z said " Setting TDC isn't required b/c the opti goes onto the pin." I installed the Opti with the proper slot pushed into the cam and now im getting spark but it still wont fire up. i made sure the distributor base timing mark (#1 on distribuor) was lined up with the camshaft sprocket pin slot when i installed it (note: when i turned the crank snout so that the camshaft pin would be in the proper location for the camshaft sprocket pin slot to be lined up with distributor base timing mark #1 the #1 piston didn't seem to be at the exact top of the motor, i came to that conclusion by using a plasic zip tie to see how far it would go down.) On that note i also have excessivly tried starting the car to the point where it drained out a new battery and i was told that spark plugs that get soaked in gasoline are shot and will not work anymore. So basically after that long story should i install new plugs and try starting it risking another soaking? or is the car not starting because the #1 piston has to be exactly at the top of the motor?
