    Hello randy1,

    Refer to Chapter 1 for the firing order and #1 plug location on the distributor. If you refer to the troubleshooting section at the beginning of the manual, you'll find some suggestions on what to look for given your vehicle's condition. Keep it simple; fuel, fire, air and timing is what you need to check.
    Good luck with your repair.
