.......but your plug leads don't look correct. I think the #1 wire should be in the 1 o'clock position on the distributor then going counter-clockwise, the #3 wire, then #4, then #2. >>
Unless my eyes are SO shot from looking at a BMC Parts Catalogue with it's -10 point font print, all but # 3 are wrong, Dave <G> ! ! !
The way I see it (counter-clockwise):
Dist. # 1 goes to Plug # 2
Dist. # 4 goes to Plug # 1
Dist. # 3 goes to Plug # 3
Dist. # 2 goes to Plug # 4
BUT, dizzy DOES look incorrectly 'positioned' <G> ! ! !
Larry, Dave is correct in that #1 wire (cap) should be at 1:00 o'clock ! !
Yours looks to be at close to 3:00 o'clock ? ! ?
HOW did you put the dizzy "drive shaft" in ?????????
Have you turned to motor since you FIRST installed timing chain (with dots aligned<G>)???
GREAT lookin' job ! ! ! Question: Can't tell for SURE, but are there rubber 'o' rings under
cyl. head nuts as visible in last picture ?? I tried to enlarge, but............<G> ! !
