I like cars more than I know about them. what good comes out of changing this part?

tony cotta says:

Great Video but you must remember that the oil shaft may be in the wrong place because all the distributors are not the same and a lot of people do not have the shaft turning tool you may be able to set the shaft down in the block at top dead center and slowly rotate crank and it should drop in to place on oil drive shaft it won't take out of time then adjust the distributor after ran.

Would rpm jumping around when first starting up cold and low rpm causing it to die after reaching operating temperature, be the pick up coil in the distributor ?

This is not how it's done on my 98 5.7

Jess says:

When checking the timing with a light afterwards, is The notch on the pully supposed to line up with the mark on the block?

I changed just the cap and rotor and the truck didn't turn on after. Also did spark plugs and wires gas was in the sparkplugs. A few of them. I still continued. Followed 1 by 1. Rotor was place the same way it came off. Any thoughts?
