    Hello All!

    First time on a Jeep forum. I just had my engine completely rebuilt. I have a close friend/private mechanic putting the engine back in. All went well except for the timing. He has can't find right spot to start (0) to get the Jeep running. He can get it crunk for a short time but then shuts off.
    He has a buddy that has about the same year and specs as mine and he is going to compare his.
    Any other suggestions. I can't find any info on this Jeep's setting for the distributor.
