How do I change the timing for the "nutter bypass"

So I totally understand what I need to do, I just dont know how to do it an I want to make sure I do it correctly. After the Nutter bypass it tells your to advance the timing to 8 Degrees BTDC. Does anyone have any step by step directions on how to do that and the tool's I'll need? Pictures would help.

Thanks!

Here you go don't forget to get a timing light also timing mark must be clean.

Timing mark is located in the crank pulley.

Loosen the bolt for the distributor and turn. Now you can do it three different ways start turn it in small movements until it starts, or use a vacuum gauge until it runs or find a timing light and still guess at a starting point. There is not set directions to start to set the timing. Most of it is by ear in the first place to do the beginning setting. Then using either the ear and time to get it right. Use the timing light or vacuum gauge to set it right to the money. And none are a sure method to get the engine to run right.

Great Video, I wish that was available when I started learning about ignition curve and timing!
