Ok, I got rope in to helping some guys out with an '88 2.6 Trooper that was a basket case, top end had been torn down because of bad head, you know the story.. Anyway, they got a new head got it bolted on, haphazardly put some of the stuff back on it and requested some help... So I went down there, the fuel lines are on reversed, were not routed thru the pressure regulator at all, vacuum lines off all over the place, etc... a complete mess. So they're telling me that they got it to start up on Thursday but it ran away so they shut it down. Story goes it was firing on all cylinders, just running like the pedal was on the floor. First thing I do is check the timing and it was 180 degrees out. They had the rotor pointed at #1 at TDC. I fixed that as well as spend an hour or so hooking up lines tot he right places, etc... Spent several hours on it today and never could get it to fire. They're insisting that it ran fast and smooth when pointed at #1 at TDC when checked at the cam..... So far as I know this is impossible... Am I missing something here? Was there a 2.6 that fired on #1 that I'm not aware of?
