  1. Doug&Deb's post in After New Points, Cap, Rotor, Condensor, wires, Plugs and cleaning up the old Distributor== Now she backfires and runs rough? was marked as the answer   
    I recommend starting from scratch. Remove the plugs and wires. With the plugs out you can turn the engine by hand using the fan. Place a finger on the front spark plug hole until the compression pushes it off. At that point the timing mark should line up with the pointer. Remove the cap and the rotor should be at the 7 o’clock position. I normally remove the distributor at this point when replacing points. It’s much easier to work on and adjust the gap. Replace the distributor and plugs. The firing order is 1 5 3 6 2 4. Make sure all the wires are seated properly on both ends. This should get you running again. After the engine has fully warmed up check the timing with a timing light and fine tune the adjustment if needed. If you don’t have a service manual I highly recommend one. If not someone here will have the data you need. Good luck.

    Originally there was a cork seal. I replaced mine with a rubber o-ring. Just measure the distributor shaft and the counterbore in the block and find the correct size o-ring.
  3. Doug&Deb's post in D14 Wiring harness? was marked as the answer   
    If you want originality try YNZ harnesses in California. I’ve not used the entire harness but I did buy the trans harness. I have no complaints. The connectors are correct and the instructions were easy to follow. Rhode Island wiring is the other company that supplies. I’ve never heard anything bad about them either.
