Ill have good photos of a epic head gasket failure to share...
I thought I told you how to do it last time you were out here? Mark the position of the body installed, pull cap, then start to pull the dist. Upwards- once the gear has disengaged from the cam, mark where the rotor points to. To reinstall, have the body indexed close to where it was before (first mark) then insert the dist. With the rotor pointing at the second mark.
Where the rotor points with the dist fully installed does not matter if you do it this way.
