Need help with distrubitor

Hey I'm new here & seems to have a lot of knowledgeable folks here,so I have a '72 nova w/ a 250 c.i.d. 6.But I have a h.e.i. from a 79 nova.One of the points on the cap was broke,so me & a buddy replaced the cap & now won't start!We've been trying to find the firing order for the cap also. It was also choking out @ 55-65 mph but now is doing it @ 35! Please someone help, this is my daily driver,Thanks

the firing order is cast on the intake manifold somewhere if you look around

set the engine to #1 TDC of compression stroke

see what tower on the cap the rotor is pointing at

this will be your #1 tower

now run the wires to each cylinder in the same number order around the cap startin at your #1 tower. same number order as the firing order cast on the intake manifold

fron of engine is #1

last one is #6

123456 front to back

is the cylinder numbers
