Well if you've followed the firing order then you have it right.... if you managed to f up and go backwards it wouldn't be running at all and you'd have it backfiring a lot (flames out eh intake and puffs of smoke out the exhaust)..... and a flat battery from trying to start it..... what else have you changed? why change the leads only? are the plugs, dizzy cap & rotor button in good nick?
