So i pulled off the timing cover and here's the deal. dot-to-dot lines up at crank (12oclock) and cam (6oclock)...this is tdc @ exhaust.
rotate crank till air pushes my finger thru spark plug#1 so tdc @ compression...crank gear and cam gear both at 12 oclock w/ dist rotor pointing to #1 spark plug which is #1 cylinder that starts firing order. Harmonic balancer was pointing to tdc.
This all seems correct...can you verify this? I gotta be missing something...why wont it idle at low rpm's?
