I am preparing to install a new Pertronix Flame Thrower distributor and I want to make sure it's timed properly to TDC. I've never had to try to turn the engine before unless I had the radiator out and the fan removed making everything really easy and open to reach - simple to get a wrench on and turn away. I'd prefer not to have to take both both of those out again. Pardon my ignorance, but what's the easiest way/technique to turn the motor forward to TDC with everything installed? I've got the plugs out but just can't seem to get a good enough grip on anything. I've loosened the fan belt but am beginning to think maybe I should have it under tension and use it and rotating the water pump by hand to turn the block? I'm sure this gets done al the time, but I've never had to in 39 years..............or I can't remember back that far.
