I put a message earlier but did'nt put the right info in the title to specify what I needed help with. Truck won't fire, but it may be due to to much fire water in the blood of the previous wrench turners. I need to get the proper firing order, how to set the dist., and which cylinder to use in the timing sequence. Also need the point gap, plug gap, etc it seems to have the dist. with only one set of points. Previous owners were a bit less than careful, when one truck would'nt start they robbed parts from others. I have new plugs and wires to install, new coil also. It has new points, cond,rotor and cap.
So if any of you can help or know where on the net to find this stuff please do so. Thanks you
