A timing light is a tool you attach to the 1st or 4th plug wire to check the ignition timing when engine ie running.
You removed the distributor so the ignition timing has been disturbed. Try to tighten the bolts as close to the original position as possible. If you turn the distributor clockwise, you will retard the timing, lesser power. To advance the timing, turn it anticlockwise.
