Hey guys,

Had issues with the car. Wasn't sparking, so I changed the TFI module and coil, got it sparking, fuel is getting to the rail, but it still doesn't want to start. To change the module, I had to pull the distributor out. One of my guesses as to why it's not starting is that I haven't put it back in the right spot. I lined up the notch on the pulley with TDC, and the rotor button is at start on the dizzy.

The battery is flat, and I have been trying to start it by jump starting off another car, still not working.

My car has been off the road for about a week, and it's getting very frustrating. I need help badly!

Thankyou!

the markings on new dissys arn't the same as stock, so when you put them on theres a good chance it got put back on wrong. could be in the wrong order too.

and check compression, it might have a serious loss of compression

TDC on compression stroke of number 1? if not it may be 180 out.

How do I know if it's on the compression stroke of number 1?

Put your finger over the plug hole (not in it) to seal the opening and one of the two up strokes will create compression you can feel. With it at TDC the rotor on the dissy should point to number one plug lead.
