Okay, technically you cannot.
You static time it to get it running but the final needs to be done when it is running.
Get a test light and put the clip on the negative of the battery.
Then put the light on the negative side of the coil.
Make sure the engine is on top dead center compression stroke and the rotor pointing to the number 1 cylinder. Then rotate the distributor until the light goes out. That is commanding the cylinder to fire or it is top dead center for timing.
