Does anyone have a firing diagram/firing order. I replaced a carbon build up cap and rotor and new plug wires but it still feels like it has a mis. What can I test or adjust and how? It has a new distribuator and coil. Can timing be adjusted or tested with a timing light and how? I didn't see any timing marks on the harmonic baloncer.
