So I figured out what had happened. Underneath the engine two of the wires had gotten switched on me without me noticing and as such the firing order was incorrect. I figured this out by looking on a similar truck and compare the order of wires. It also turns out that the long end is for the two plugs that you cannot attach an elbow to due to the presence of exhaust piping. Additionally, with the aftermarket exhaust sheilding was later required along with re-routing of the wires and some brackets because the wires had rested on said piping, burnt through and were arching which resulted in reduced power.

sounds like a bad ignition module check for spark when it dies if you do not have spark at plugs check between coil and coil wire if still no spark most likely module it is under rear of distributer cap resembles a black wafer board with two electrical plugs
REMOVE DIST. CAP AND CRANK ENGINE SEE IF ROTOR TURN IF IT NOT, CHECK TIMING BELT, IF IT TURNS CHECK FOR SPARK ON DIST. CAP WHERE COIL WIRE GOES IF SPARK CHANGE OUT SPARK PLUG WIRES.IF NO SPARK CHECK IGNITION COIL AND PICK UP COIL.
When did you last have a tune up? Sounds like it's not running on all four cylinders. Check the oil to make sure they filled it to the correct level, but the oil change should not be related. With the engine cold, check the wires at the distributor cap, to make sure they are inserted completely, also that they are connected properly to the spark plugs. If you're not sure when it was last tuned, or it's been quite a while, replace the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor. It won't cost much for parts, and you can do it yourself to save $$. Let me know how it goes, or if you need further help. Curt
read your complaint and refphrase it a bit clearer. I get is "bults? meaning bolts? what do you mean by "nose" out? I got the part where he doesn't want to help I'm sorry, you are trying to pull the starter, you have the bolts out. Is the starter loose? Stop there and make sure your battery negative is disconnected. This is a must. OK, the starter should just come straight out. It can be tilted if need be but remember the wires are still connected. Thode you can disconnect once the starter is out far enough to see the wires. Try to remember wher the small wire(s) go, The big one is a given.Let me know when you get your replacement sttarter. If he doesn't want to help , what does he want?.
