    Ok, so I am in desperate need of some help. I have a 1992 Honda civic LX, I took my old motor out in place of a built D16Z6. I ran into some problems with not having spark, I finally fixed that and then my fuel pump went out. Put a new one in today. Tried to start it and it is hesitant to start...It will make it want to turn over then just stop, and try again. The positive ground wire on the starter gets red hot and starts to smoke after awhile. I am getting fuel and spark but its just not firing. I believe I have the spark plugs right. The 1st one goes on the "C" terminal right? and the cylinder order is 4-3-2-1 correct? So my question is why do you think its no starting? Thanks for the help guys!
