Hi murphy, You probably crossed the spark plug wires. You need to figure out the order the wires go in on the cap. Buy a Chilton or Haynes manual or contact your Honda dealership to figure this out. Good luck!


crossed wires, take dvigano's advice


check to make sure the rotor is on secure,check to see if you have spark.

fireing order ia 1324 disturibor cap should have num.1 on itthe plugs go 1234 in head roter turns clock wise. put wires in 1324,should start.
