    Hey guys.
    Changed Dizzy @ rotor cap? Now car won't start .It's a VN SS 5.0L "91".
    Had previously moved dizzy freehand so I Set TDC at "0" without the 10 degrees advanced, then kicked it over. it sounds like it wont's to start but just doesn't seem to wanna go all the way. wondering if anyone has any Idea's,it would be much appreciated.Leads are in order 1-2-7-8-4-5-6-3.[Just General Maintenance] Go Figure

    hi did you use a timing light?
    did you move the dissy after you dont rotor button and leads?
    or was that before it was done?
    timing has to be set with car diagnostic mode other it will read the advance the computer adds to it

    try re-setting the static timing on the dizzy back to 10degrees BTDC. also double check the order on the plug leads
