The wires go 1-3-4-2 in that order on the distributor. Number 1 cylinder is on the timing belt side. 2 is next to it, 3 is next to it, 4 is closest to the distributor.
Look for the A symbol on the cap and that will be where wire 1 goes. Then just go in order above.
You don't have to set tdc when you remove the distributor, but if you don't have a timing light it's best to make a couple marks across the distributor and head so that you can put it back on without setting the timing. If you didn't make marks then you have to re-time with a timing light.
It is Fixed! I just turned the rotor 180* degrees and it started up. Put some coolant in it, because I replaced the heater hose under the distributor, and drove it around the block. Runs well.
However... when it is in Park the engine revs up to about 2000rpm and keeps doing it, even though my foot is on the brake. Also the locking mechanism sounds like switches on and off, but the locks are not doing anything. Only does this for like 10 seconds, but it is kind of weird.
At least it runs and the Check Engine Light that was giving me a P0135 engine code disappeared.
