You are probably off a tooth or two when you reinstalled the distributor. You need to correctly time the distributor to the engine - - and then time the ignition (spark) to the engine. Two step process.ScottJ wrote: and then pulled the distributor off to check it.
Your marks could appear to line up and you ignition timing still be way off. An error in ignition timing at the distributor is doubled on the crankshaft.ScottJ wrote:I don't understand why if I have my marks lined up that my timing could be different from where it was before.
