I'm going through my 1974 skid steer (Case 1737) and replacing just about everything, hoses, belts, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, condensor, points, etc.. It's been many years since I last messed with a distributor that used points. Does anyone know how to set the gap? I'm thinking you have to have the number one piston at top dead center and then adjust it with a feeler gauge, is that right? If so, how do you get the number one at TDC? Which one is number one? It's a four cylinder gas engine.
