thought he said his getting fuel to the carb???????

I don't have the old ones anymore and I've been trying for two months to get it going now

play around with the distributor

What you mean by play with it try different firing order or rotate it

ROTATE IT, WHAT U COULD DO IS REMOVE PLUG 1 TURN THE PISTON TO TOP DEAD CENTER... REMOVE THE DIST CAP, THE POSITION OF THE ROTOR IS NUMBER 1, THEN TURN TILL FIRING UP, IF NOT LET ME KNOW

Is any one close to Brunswick Ga

will 84 ford ranger spark plugs and plug wires work on a 79 ford pinto motor

Maybe yes no

Answer is on the left side of the grille (just humor - I have an '84 Ranger).....
