finding compression stroke wile stabbing dizzy. finding compression stroke wile stabbing dizzy. ati damper all lines faded. new stock dizzy stabbed right or wrong? question to locate the position of number 1 inside the distributor, and line it up with the wire and the case. 1do you first find number 1 cylinder as air is just coming out of the #1 spark plug with my finger on it? or do i wait till all the air comes out to be on the compression stroke.? i noted today as air just exits the #1 cylinder the #1 spark wire on the distributor did not line up with the rotor. it was off to the right. and not lined up with # 1 on the cap, but if i continued to rotate the crank by hand, when all the air from the compression on number 1 spark plug came out, and was evacuated, the wire cap, and rotor did line up with the distributor cap. for firing number 1 spark plug. this seems incorrect to me..
