while Brittney is correct about dwell, in this case thats not the issue. Also, the distributor can not be adjusted in that manner on this car. at least not from my experience.

From what i saw, it appeared that i only had 2 cylinders firing, however, they all had some sort of fire otherwise the car would not run. The car shook terribly but it did run. Once i bench tested and cleaned my injectors, they all sprayed fine, but i still took them in to get professionally cleaned, new caps, and new o rings.

Since they have beeen back in, it runs so much smoother.

Has this car been sitting for a long time?
