Does it run smooth? Just to be safe check the firing order. Staring from the first wire on the left side of the coil, firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Ok this app is going full retard and won't let me edit what I actually typed. So to advance timing is COUNTER CLOCKWISE and to retard the timing is clockwise. Again I apologize for the phones BS

Its no problem thanks for the help . Car wouldnt start . The distributor wasnt put in right . No matter how much I retarded the timming the carb would back fire . So I had to reinstall the distributor . Isnt that hard but when there are no timming marks on the covor that the previous owner put on. Its not fun lol

Badass lol well good luck to you and hopefully you won't have many problems. I suggest you tune that carb though, its super easy and I'm sure they're something you can search for that will show you how. You'll need a vacuum gauge
