I replaced the spark plugs, wires, vacuum tubes. Labor aside, most of job was ok except: 1) The spark plug boot on plug in top left (number 1) broke off and it was a bit of disaster getting the rest of wire boot out piece by piece with needle nose pliers but the plug came out normally 2) the vacuum hose line splitter broke when removing vacuum line E so i replaced with a generic 'f' configuration. Other than destroying my knuckles everything else went ok.
Now the engine will not start. I do not hear any hissing so not a vacuum leak. When I turn the key I get cranking action (rrrrrrrr noise) but no turn over. I pulled back the ignition wires to 2-4-6 to look for some sparking or clicking (as you will recall 2-4-6 are easy to look at and 1-3-5 are buried under manifold) and none of them were sparking or clicking when trying to start.
I checked all the fuses in cabin under steering wheel.
Any ideas? Did I forget a connection - had to tear apart 1/2 the engine to get a plugs 1, 3, 5
Oxygen Sensor? Crank Shaft sensor? Mass Air Flow Sensor?
According to what have found online
1 3 5
2 4 6 (these have ignition coils)
wires connect 1-4, 3-6, 5-2
have the same problem?
