firing order/ignition wires
Posted by David on 11/29/2017, 21:02:08
I messed up my plug wires and wanted to check that I have the firing order correct. Fig 171 of the repair manual shows the order as (going clockwise) 1-4-2-6-3-5. I can't tell from the photo which direction #1 is pointed. It seems to be pointed towards the vacuum advance diaphragm mechanism, but in my engine, that's toward the driver's rear corner of the block. Is it supposed to be aiming there or at the #1 plug? The plug wiring is the only thing that seems to be jacked up. Points are gapped and I'm getting good arc from the coil at the plugs. Didn't mess with the timing and it was starting on starter fluid.
