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.
Actually the firing order is still the same as it always was. To put it more accurately, you changed the location of terminal #1 on the distributor cap.

In any event, glad you got it figured out.
