1979 4WD wagon --- timing, firing order, jets

Recommended Posts

I'd appreciate the following info:

 

1. firing order and numbers (where's my number one?);

2. timing, sea level (remind me to disconnect vaccum advance--do I plug the vaccum at the carb?)

3. recommended carb jet size, sea level

 

Hard starts and backfires at turn off. My Roadmaster's going into the shop for a while, and in the meantime I have to get the Subaru ready for daily duty. :brow: That, or share the Big Pretentious S.U.V. with the wife. :rolleyes: Thanks, Cricket. (still, free 78 2Wd wagon in AZ!!!)

"1. firing order and numbers (where's my number one?);

2. timing, sea level (remind me to disconnect vaccum advance--do I plug the vaccum at the carb?)

3. recommended carb jet size, sea level"-as you asked.

 

#1- 1,3,2,4 and your number one cylinder is the front passenger side.#3 is just aft of that one.#2 leads the way on the port side,and #4 be aft of old number two.As I remember it,your number one on the distributor cap is the one closest to the automatic choke on your carb.Then going COUNTERCLOCKWISE it's 3,2,and then 4.

 

#2- Check to make sure your point gap is corrct before anything else.Disconnect the vacuum hoses of the advancer and retarder from the distributor to stop those functions,and while checking ignition timing,plug the end of the vacuum hoses.

 

49 states: set to 8deg. +/- 2deg. BTDC @ 850 RPM

Cali.: set to same @900 PRM

 

#3-
