The only things to disconnect from the distributor is the Vacuum line from Vacuum Advance and the Electrical Connection.
Ok, now if I am not mistaken the Vacuum Advance when you reinstall should be pointing toward the front passenger fender almost toward the Headlight. But first you will need to get the #1 cylinder to TDC (Top Dead Center) on Compression Stroke, before removing the Cap Mark on the Distributor Housing were the #1 Plug Tower is for reference, then remove Cap. While installing the Distributor Making sure the Vacuum Advance is pointing as stated earlier and the Rotor Button is pointing at the mark you made for the #1 Plug Tower. It may take a few times lifting it up just enough to be able to turn the rotor button freely. Once you get it were you believe it is correct replace hold down and tighten then replace cap and all connections try starting. I starts you will just need to set timing as I posted earlier. If doesn't start then it is possible you are 180 degrees off, meaning that you weren't at TDC on the Compression Stroke.
So hopefully between what CJ Medevac and I have posted you will be successful at getting it straight.
