Starting at the front, closest to the radiator the cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4. The order that they fire is 1-2-4-3. It also takes two revolutions of the engine for all of the cylinders to fire one time. First you have to determine when #1 is ready to fire. Remove #1 sparkplug, then, with your finger over the hole, rotate the engine until air comes out. This is the compression stroke, at the top of which the #1 sparkplug fires. Also, at the top of this stroke, the timing mark (TDC)is visable, on the flywheel, viewed through the small round hole in the bottom of the bell housing. The rotor should now be pointing to the #1 tower on the distributor cap. Install #1 plug wire there, then clockwise #2-#4-#3. You should be ready to start the engine now. Duey

Thanks Duey. It was getting really frustrating. I'll keep you posted. I hope to get back to it before this weekend. hope to post some pics soon but will need advice. this is my first tractor board but it seems to have helped with my Harley so I figured why not? It may have already paid off. Thanks again Duey.
