Subject:      Re: how did this happen ... ?

Steve; After you get the wires back on in the right order here's a tip: Somehow mark the wires and cap so it never happens again. I have done it in two ways. One with a fine point indelible marker like a Sharpie. Write on the distributor and the corresponding wire end. The other end I put one wire tie(zip style) on the number one wire near the spark plug. Two on the number two and three on the number three. I don' put any on the number four. This way under times of mild duress, even though I have worked on flat fours for dozens of years, re-assembly is idiot proof(no offense).
