Hi there,

The firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6.

Are you sure the distributor went back in with rotor button facing the same position as before removal?


Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

The cap is numbered, not in firing order, just follow the cylinder numbers.

Hi again,

Do you still need help?

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.

Kind regards
