You probably got the spark plug wires out of order.
Attached is a diagram that has that correct order on engine and rotor. If for some reason wires do no t work out on rotor cap, you may have it 180 degrees out of timing. Just turn it.


Did you use the proper spark plugs? What is litre size of engine? Do you know your firing order?

Hi drcranknwrench, I didn't see your post. Looks like you got it under control. Have a good day.
