    Default Olds 455 running rough....

    I have an olds 455 that I just purchased. I replaced the intake and dist. and ignition box. Went to fire it up and I can't get it to idle and It is running rough. When i installed the new dist. I took the #1 cyl. spark plug out & got it on the comp. stroke, pointed the rotor at the #1 cyl and the rotated the cap at the #1 position.

    Any Ideas?

    Check firing order. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
    Timing can be 180* out
