The secondaries have about 3/4 turn on them.

Double check the easy things first- the firing order (1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2) and be real sure #5 and #7 isn't swapped at the cap or at the plugs. The plugs should be fresh. Cap and rotor good, wires good. PCV connected and plumbed right.

Check closely for vacuum leaks and be sure of the timing. These are all things Cliff will no doubt also want you to double check, so that way you can eliminate them before calling.

Good luck.
