Start from the basics. You need to check compression on each cylinder. 174 to 123 PSI min. Maximum compression difference 21PSI. Also check your firing order. 1-3-4-2. Cylinder #1 in TDC, pointer on timing cover must be aligned with 0 on the harmonic blancer. Remove distributor cap, rotor must be pointing toward notch on distributor body rim. Rotor turns clockwise. Remove covers from spark plug wires to make sure you have correct firing order. Do not race engine at idle, or drive the car. It may result in broken connecting rod.
