replacing distributor rotor

hey everyone, just a quick question, which way exactly should the rotor be oriented in order to get at the screw? should the metal fin be facing directly forward, as in to the front of the car, which would mean you access the screw from the back side, which is facing the windshield? i think this is what i was told, but i cant remember. thanks for your help.

I just turned the engine over using the crankshaft pulley untill I saw the screw facing out. Sorry I can’t remember which way it was but you can just look and see where it is in respect the the rotor and go from there.

well what part of the rotor is the screw on, because it looks like one solid piece to me… sorry if im being dumb! lol.

the screw is near the base of the rotor
