All the parts store will carry the gasket set, and they should have the TB gasket too.

Brass fittings are good for transmission cooler lines. Use transmission cooler hose as it's made to take the temperature and pressure. (Fuel line will work in a emergency but isn't correct for long term reliability.

Well, the manifold is reinstalled but it will not start. We wernt able to replace the gasket/spacer between the tbody and the intake manifold. She is backfiring when i try to start, every now and then she will catch on one cylinder. The plugs are dry but there is plenty of fuel getting in. I have a new spacer/gasket im putting in tonight. the spark plugs are connected according to the diagram in the manual. Unfortunately, the timing scale with the 0 mark and the +- 10 degrees is missing. I found the mark on the balancer.

Given that the plugs are dry and the intake mani is wet with fuel I'm assuming the old spacer is leaking massively and the backfires I'm seeing are lean pops. If the new spacer doesn't fix it im gonna use a dowel rod inside the spark plug hole to verify TDC of cyl 1 and compare it to where the distributor is pointed.

OK, she runs again!

The previous owner installed the distributor 45 degrees too far counter clockwise. It was firing cyl 2 when it should have been firing cyl 1. I moved the spark plug wires one unit clockwise and she fired right up.

So here is my question. This is screwing up the hall effect sensor in the distributor right? This would cause it not to advance properly right? Or is the sensor simply for giving the ECU RPM not absolute position of the rotor?

I don't think it matters on a TBI setup. Also, the dizzy only goes in 2 ways, it has a screwdriver-like tip that fits in a slot in the oil pump drive gear. So it is either installed right, or 180 degrees out, in which cause it definitely would not run. So I would say it is in there right.

While the gear may be in the correct position the portion of the dizzy that holds the cap is off according to the hayes diagram which indicates the position of the wires relative to the clips that hold the cap. If its not throwing off the sensor having it wrong i don't care.

In other news the temp sensor went bad so i got another one from Murrays but i think its wrong... the gauge reads high but the infared temp sensor says the hottest spot on the motor is the heater hoses which were 200F. I ordered a VDO gauge setup that i'l use instead of the stock gauge. Also in that setup are a tach and a trans temp gauge.
