Some of you may have seen my previous posts, but long story short is I took my engine out to replace the rear main seal and the clutch. Now I have it back in and I've been having trouble starting it. I currently getting inconsistent sparking (i.e. weak sparking, not sparking, or sparking normally).

I have replaced the ignition coil, distributor cap, distributor rotor, break points, condenser, spark plugs, and wires.

I don't know much about the timing, but may have messed it up by turning the distributor when reinstalling it. I also am not 100 certain about the wires are in the right order.

Can someone help?

I would check your grounds (battery to block, battery/block to frame)
