Are plug wires installed in correct order and fully snapped down on the spark plugs? Did you install the proper plug and was it gapped correctly? Did you have to unplug any wire harnesses while working on it? Are they all plugged back in fully? Could you have caused any other harness to become loose? If so inspect all to insure they are fully plugged in.

Best Answer

Everything is properly put in. What ends up happening is that it feels like it want to start but it does not have that kick to fully run the engine... If that makes sense. And thanks lol

If it was running before the change of part I would double check everything. Specially the plug wire placement and order on the distr cap

Yea it was the order of the wires. Now it runs better than ever after changing the plugs. People who had it before seriously never did maintenence on it. Thanks for all your help
