If the car won't run, it is possibly just a bad wiring sequence.

Check the wiring. If necessary remove the cap, determine the TDC

for cylinder number one, and make sure your wiring is correct. I

had this happen to me when I changed a valve, and followed the

firing order on the diagram, but the image was off by 60 degrees.

The result was major back firingng.
