I am in the final stages of installing my rebuilt 216 into my '46 3/4 ton

I need help with four things:

1.  How do I orient the flywheel so that the timing mark is in the right

2.  I would like to roughly set the valves.  Can I set them to the specs for a
hot engine before I start it for the first time so that the valves are close
and the engine will fire?

3.  I am thinking that I will static time the engine so that I can get the
timing close.  Is the right thing to do?

4.  Any other tips for a first time do-it-yourselfer in getting the new engine
in and running correctly?
