Another very common mistake is the plug wires for #5 and #7 to be swapped. The firing order has #5 and #7 right next to each other on the distributor cap- AND the spark plugs are next to each other at the cylinder head. This gives two chances to transpose the wires. The engine will run like that, but poorly.
