MODELS IGNITION TIMING

1980 Volkswagen Other

Electrical problem
1980 Other Volkswagen Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200, 00 miles

I PUT NEW POINTS, CAP, ROTOR AND WIRES ON THIS 1980 DASHER MOTOR. NOW IT SOUNDS LIKE TIMING IS OFF. SPUTTERS AND BACKFIRES WITHOUT STARTING. DO I NEED TO SET THE TIMING? HOW DOES DISTRIBUTOR LOOSEN TO DO THIS?

If you did not touch the timing I don't think that's your problem, tell me what you set the point gap at?
