Well I figured out why the 'stang was running so poorly......

The spark plug wires were ALL crossed. What should of been 1,2,3,4,5,6 was 4,6,5,2,3,1!! to make it even worse is that the dist cap had the numbers ON IT.

I am amazed that it even ran, let alone made the 100+ mile round trip to KC. Of course now that its running on all 6 its puking when I stop. lol

Back in High School auto shop, it was kinda drilled into our heads that the only firing order for an inline six could be 1-5-3-6-2-4. Do you have it right?
