Wires on wrong plugs.

 

Roll to TDC. Rotor from distributor now points at the #1 position. Plug wire going to spark plugs number one.

 

Now install the rest of the wires in order.

 

1-3-4-2 in a counter clockwise order.

 

It's possible if wire order is correct, maybe wire not fully seated against plug.

Timing is off.

 

Did you turn or bump the distributor at all?

Plugs are wet. Try in the morning.

when changing a valve cover gasket one only needs to unclip the distributor cap and fold over the wires and clip dist cap back on. Simple

 

 

did you pull the plug wires and the ends inside bust off? that could be a issue
