hi guys, to close the thread and help out anyone else that ever runs into this here is what i did. i basically took all the wires off, took cylinder # 6 spark plug out and spun the motor till it started compressing air and set it at tdc. then ran the wires from the # 6 cylinder and using it as number 1.
so now my firing order is 6-5-7-2-1-8-4-3 it now times at 12 degrees and runs decent. however i have another problem im going to post on a seperate thread.
Thanks for the help everyone.
