Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I try to crank it I put new timing chain
and new distributor cap and plug
wires what else could it be for it to

1 Answer


Did the backfiring start before or after you replaced the plug wires, cap, and chain? If it happened after, take a timing light and re-time the engine...should be 4 degrees BTDC (pretty much the industry standard for that era).
