The first word that jumps into my head is Dizzy.

On JDM ZC engines, there's the same problem. Two of the wires on one of the distributor plugs are switched, so you have to switch them back in order for it to work right (I'm not sure which ones they are.) I'll try to look them up, but sacicons or someone might already know.

And you might want to try and return some of that stuff if you don't need it...

No, I'm pretty sure that the firing order is what the dizzy problem relates to. It ends up trying to fire in the wrong order if the wires are switched.

the longest wire goes to the farthest plug and the shortest to the closest.... should be pretty simple from there.. i screwed my order up once but i still got it to run and i could go down the street... with load bangs following me... lol

No, that's not what I meant by having the wires screwed up. I'm talking about two of the actual signal wires that go to the dizzy.

God DAMN this post-time restriction...

Yeah, I've been looking. I thought I had a page bookmarked that had it all on there, but I guess not, so I just have to look around.
