Bad wires or bad connection between boot and plug. Dielectric grease can help with boot to plug connection.

Also you may want to recheck the gap on the plugs.

You can unplug one wire at a time while running to see which plug has the problem.

Looking for dist firing order for 1967 430 plus a vacuum diagram and what side of coil does dist wire go on?


The firing order is, 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2
Odd and even numbered cylinder banks. driver side bank, front to back, 1 3 5 7
passenger side bank, front to back, 2 4 6 8
Dist rotor rotation, clock wise.
If you put number one cylinder on tdc of compression stroke, then whichever sparkplug tower the rotor is leading into, in the proper direction is number one. Then you follow the firing order in proper direction around the cap.

How do you change spark plugs


Hi Gary!

If you got a CAR and not a truck, there are a few things you need to pay attention to when replacing spark plugs.

You need to make sure your spark plugs are the issue for whatever the problem is.
Take a 16mm SPARKPLUGS spanner (it's a special sort of tool that you buy in the shop, unless you have it, don't bother to try with anything else, or your could do some damage), unplug one of the cables attached to one of the sparkplugs (make sure you don't unplug more that one, so you won't mess the order), take your magic tool (sparkplug socket spanner or whatever it is called) fit it on top of the sparkplug, (listen for the clicking) and then twist it left until the sparkplug is out.

Have a look to your sparkplug, and see if there is any carbon on it (if it's black, it has to be replaced/sandpapered)

repeat the operation to the other (alledgedly 3) sparkplugs, naking sure you DO NOT MESS UP the order of the cables that connect to the sparkplugs.

If finally you've decided it is time to replace the sparkplugs, under NO circumstances, replace less than ALL of them. (unless you replace them on the car of someone you don't like)

Does increasing the gap on points advance or ****** the timing?


It does neither. Timing is changed by rotating the distributor housing.
The point gap should be set at the specified gap and left there. Opening it too far or too little won't let the coil work properly, and your spark at the sparkplug will be seriously impaired. The coil can't build good secondary voltage to fire the plug.

I change the engine on the car and it's bacfireing and hard to start with backfireing at all the time but it's runing it run fine


This sounds like a crossed sparkplug wire, start by making sure the firing order is correct, if theres a sparkplug wire in the wrong spot this would cause hard starting and the backfiring, so check the firing order first, i would of given you a firing order diagram but you forgot to list the year, make , model and the engine size. good luck and have a good day.

My quad wont start an its has petrol an i have just changed the spark plug


get a diagram online for the proper sparkplug wire locations and make sure they got put pack in the right firing order. Sometimes it is easy to accidently get them mixed up. Also I was acutally given the wrong sparkplugs from the autoparts store the other day. I went to find out the proper gap setting online and found out the plugs I had were not for my vehicle. Checking the gap on plugs is important before you put them in because sometimes they get dropped and the gap is wrong when you get them out of the box.

1989 Dodge Omni Stalls out


A sparkplug wire may have been loosesed or disconnected or damaged.
If you can't find it then wait until late evening when it's dark.

Open hood and start the car. You will see the sparks from the damaged/loose sparkplug cable. Don't touch it while ignition is ON. It will shock you!

If you "disconnected" any sparkplug wires when you replaced the oil pump, then they were not put back in the proper firing order.

Hope this helps!
