ok on your bottom pully there is a groove in it. that is a timing mark. on the block behind that pully there is little marks with numbers. these are timing marks. the easiest way to do this is get some white out and mark that little groove in the pully so it can easily be seen. im assuming you have a timing light and know how to use it??
have the car running at operating temp, loosen off the distributer at the base and make that white line line up with the number 10 on the block. you do this by turning the distributer and when its in line with the 10 on the block tighten the distributer back up so it cant move.
just a point too. check to see what its at BEFORE you change anything so if you have problems or it runs like crap or whatever you can just put it back to what it was so you can still drive your car.
as for the base idle id consult your gregorys manual or even a mechanic as i personlly dont like to **** with things like that.
