Yes, you will have to make sure the rotor phase is correct.

Also you need to lock the advance if it has one :-

Yeah, you take it apart and you can turn the top piece on the shaft 180* and it's locked. Drill a 3/16 hole between #1 and the coil wire terminal and use that to "phase" the distributor. Oh, and some ppl use a timing light to do this but I just usually set the timing mark on however much advance I have in the crank trigger then phase the distributor by looking in that aformentioned hole to make sure it's pointed at #1

You can drill the hole in the cap for phase on any wire as long asou use that wire to phase it.. On my Vega
it was hard to see #1 so I did it on #6 instead =; .......
