Hi: I,m working on my friends ford 2000 serial # 21201. The tractor runs smooth at idle and reveed up, but doesn't make the power it should. Compression is good in all cylinders. The distributors is in right firing on # 1 when timing marks are up. The firing order on dist cap is wrong 1432. When the firing order is installed right 1243, it just backfires and wont run. Can't figure it out. Any help

Don't know if this will help, But I worked on a 2000 once where the for=ur sided nut on the distributor shaft that opens the points had turned on the shaft. It was a bear to find. I re-positioned it and prick punched it as a temporary fix.

you say it runs smooth at idle and reved up and has good compression, but doesn't have power it should. doesn't sound like an engine problem at all. is the clutch slipping? or maybe you just expect too much out of the little 2000. perhaps we need more info.

Since no one mentioned it yet - There is a small clip that goes in the distributor if that is missing it won't run right.

I would not think that direction of rotor travel would impact on firing order.
All 4 cylinder motors that I have seen thus far have the 1342 firing order....
Can this old guy be educated??

if you hooked your wires to the cap thinking it spun one way but actually it spun the other way, the firing order will be all screwed up.

1,2,4,3 is the correct firing order as per the manual. But you maybe thinking the rotor spins differently so you could be getting the firing order wrong or it may have a valve or two that is set to tight or worse burned

thanks old: The rotor spins clockwise, and to get firing order per manual I would have to change 3 wires, which have tried and doesn't work. I thought if valves were stuck or burnt it would be found with compression test?

It may also have bad distributor shaft bushings so the points do not open correctly on all 4 lobes or it could also have a bad distributor cap

thanks andymd: If the rotor turned counter clockwise that would be correct firing order, but it spins clockwise. I tried it anyway and it just popped and ran rough. Didn't know if there were any other people with this problem?
