    Since you replaced the distributor I expect you changed the dist cap also, are you sure you got the firing order correct, 1, 3, 4, 2 counter clockwise, also when you put the distributor in was the rotor pointed the same direction, you need to put it at TDC with the cam lobes on number one cylinder pointed approximately 10am and 2pm, but it might be closer to 11am and 3pm, that will be the TDC you want, what ever post the rotor is pointed at on the distributor cap is where number one plug wire goes, again 1, 3, 4, 2 counter clock wise.

    I have a question about the distributor I have all the marks lined up on the crank and the cam and the oil pump  have It at top Dead center i know the little inn of the oil pump shaft has to go to the front but can't get the distributor on number one Piston the distribute  will only go one way have any ideas on what I am doing wrong.

  4. Thanks for the info i pulled the old distributor out and put a new one in the same way the old one came out but when I tried to get it to run it back fired I thought I got it out of time so I took it apart to check the timing and every thing seems to be in order just wondering what I should do next
