    OBD0 to OBD1 Distributor Wiring
    OBD0 (Harness Side) OBD1 OEM Dist.(Distributor Side)
    Blue w/Green Stripe-- Orange*
    Blue w/Yellow Stripe --White*
    Orange w/Blue Stripe --Orange w/Blue Stripe
    White w/Blue Stripe --White w/Blue Stripe
    Orange --Blue w/Green Stripe
    Thin White-- Blue w/Yellow Stripe
    Thick White** --Yellow w/Green Stripe

    *Note 1: On some aftermarket OBD1 distributors, the Orange and the White wire are swapped.

    **Note 2: If you confuse the two OBD0 white wires, the car will not start and could cause ignitor failure!




    these are the following dizzy instuction i have are they correct

    you mean the check engine light???
    you do ignition timing by just rotating the dizzy forward or backward

    the white wires are different in size so im sure i didn't plus it wasn't part of the same bundle of wires the flatter white wire was seperated from the rest
    ive ordered a fuel filter the car did sit for almost 2 years before it was given to me so im guessing its worth a try
    also im gonna pull the fuel line and crank it over to see if my fuel pump is working
