hey there

just working with my mate on his NF fairlane, 5L

Whats happening is we changed the spark plugs and the leads to fix a misfiring issue, but now the engine is 'Shaking'

i mean the firing order is fine, but the whole car now vibrates... its rediculous! What could cause this? a faulty sensor? or something else?

Cheers :)

Is the engine actually running properly? Give the harmonic balancer a visual inspection...
