Separate names with a comma.
They do look unaligned, but as I turned the engine they did align in the 6 to 12 locations.
Could be why the distributor had to be rotated. I would not worry about it. Piston and cam could care less.
Ok Don, I'll bite. How do you know you can potentially blow up your mufflers.
I once had a distributor with a sticky vacuum advance plate. Had it apart a couple times over a week or two trying to get it to work smoothly. When I eventually gave up and installed another distributor I couldn't remember rotor position. Guessed and installed the replacement, cranking it a few times (not a whole lot from what I recall now) Decided to check the reluctor gap and left the key on. Rotated the reluctor up to the pickup coil and BOOM! Sounded like a bomb exploded stuff fell off my back shelf. I had a neighbor run over to make sure I was OK. Completely destroyed a good set of hemi mufflers. They were difficult to remove due to being so twisted up and mangled. I really liked those mufflers.
I had a similar thing happen but it was a badly worn timing set. Split the muffler at the seam.
