Re: The "I've never done this before" build.

So in the meantime while I save for an SBC swap and some other work this summer I got the little I6 running a bit better. It's still smoking cause the rings are shot but it's runnin better than before. I swapped in a remanunfactured distributor cause the old one had a ton of play in the shaft bushings so I opted for a reman one instead of rebuilding mine, a new coil, new plugs and wires, new dizzy cap and a new fuel filter. All said and done like $140 so I can rip around while bigger things are brewing for the truck. I adjusted the valves, which were all kinda outta whack. Loose on some and tight others. It'll do for now. Note to self, and others, ALWAYS check your plug wires for proper order. I spent a bit of time scratching my head over a misfire before I remembered, 1-5-3-6-2-4 NOT 1-3-5-6-2-4 ��
