    Pull the vacuum lines off the distributer, and using a timing light, set the timing to "0"

    Yes, you will definitely need a timing light and it would be a good idea to get a haynes manual if you do not already have one. I had to do it a few times on my 89, cant remember the exact steps but the haynes will walk you thru it. basicaly point the timing light at the top of the crank pulley with motor running and rotate the distributor until the notch on the pulley lines up with the correct degree reading. This was on a 22re though. had plastic chain guides if im not mistaken. Good luck
