I changed my distributor on my 90 crx and now it won't start. Someone mentioned ignition timing, have been trying for several hours now and still can't get her to run... anyone? Thanks.

i'm guessing if it ran before you replaced the distributor. then you put the new one in wrong.

I took off my old distributor and slapped on my new one. Didn't line it up right, or mark it's placve as the old one was before taking it off. So I had my friend look down my 1st cylinder while I turned he engine over till the it was as cdlose to TDC as we could get it. Then I line up the distributor's rotor with the fisrt cylinder mark and now it works.
