    That is all correct. Now just make sure you have the engine on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke. Sounds like you have the timing 180* off

    You might want to remember this for the next time ( I found out the hard way ) try moving the wires on the cap one position counter clockwise Sometimes the dis gets set for the later years and if you try to do it like the book for a 73 it will not fire..I moved mine and it fired right up...mike
