1979 super beetle cylinder fireing order?
I recently replaced my points, condensor, wires, spark plugs, cap and rotor. Car is running worse i
adjusted points at .016 and plugs at .027. I got my wires mixed up and had to buy a manual. The
manual says the firing order is 4,3,2,1 4 being the bottom left hole on the distributor going to the
bottom left cylinder. the rest 3,2,1 working in the clockwise direction. However when i rearrange he
order of the wires as 4 to cylinder 3, 3 to cylinder 1, 2 to cylinder 2 and 1 to cylinder 4 the car runs
pretty good but not 100% correct.
QUESTIION: WHAT IS THE CORRECT ORDER?
The firing order is correct: 1-4-3-2. Number one position is marked on the distributer by a line engraved on the side. Put your rotor on and make sure it points to this line for #1. Good luck . -=Mark=-
