You have not jumped a tooth yet.

When setting up the later timing sets it is tooth to tooth.
If you were to advance the crank so the tooth with the white dot is at noon the cam would be about a half tooth retarded due to chain stretch and gear tooth wear.

When the crank is advanced relative to the alignment tooth the cam is retarded.

Set up with a good quality double roller timing set. Straight up where tooth AND keyway are at NOON.

Properly curved distributor.

The above along with a high flow 180* stat are a good start to a better running smogger engine

So I make sure I’m understanding, when I put on a new straight up set, crank keyway & tooth should be facing noon & cam tooth & marking should be facing 6 o’clock?

To do this, should I move the cam clockwise to line up?
That would be correct.

You would do better to find a one piece eccentric.
The amount the dizzy rotor was advanced after the install is the amount the cam was retarded relative to straight up.
