Re: Wtf

Start with the basics.

1 - Pull the plugs and see if you dropped them and closed the gap up
2 - Check the wires with an ohmmeter and see if they are dead
3 - Check compression
4 - Check valve adjustment

Then look further

70 Sportsroof, 427 FE/489 cid, TKO-600, 31 spline 4.10, A/C. modified Mass-flo EFI/reprogrammed A9L/CnC ported Victor.

Re: Wtf

Check the distributor cap inside contacts, outside contacts, and both terminals ends of the spark plug wires.

Re: Wtf

Check the firing order... It goes counter-clockwise.
