Hey guys, I am trying to find the bare minimum wiring that is needed to get the car to turn so I can install the distributor. Can anyone help me out?

use a 1/2 inch drive rachet or breaker bar with an extension and socket on the bolt head of the Harmonic balancer. that will turn the motor around to get the #1 at TDC.

ok, so would i mark it when its at 0? or 12 degrees after zero?

And I check if its putting pressure on my thumb by removing first spark plug right? Or is there a different better way to do it?

Alright, so do i just need the ignition switch, alt, starter, and battery to get engine to turn?

Edit: lol! rookie mistake just realized i was trying this without any fuses in my fuse box. Hahaha
You need nothihng, you turn it by hand. Pat went further to explain how. Read what we posted again
