The engine running problem turned out to be a spark plug problem. I cleaned the plugs and started to work well. Now I am trying to find what is spark plug? My poor English skills make it difficult ... Can you tell me which spark plug is right and where does it make sense for me to order? I've got the car register and I've been driving for 58 miles

It would be most helpful to determine Top Dead Center (TDC). You need to know when the number 1 cylinder piston is at its highest point on the compression stroke. Hopefully you know how to do that...I can explain if you dont...

Once you are at TDC, verify that the timing mark on the Harmonic Dampner is at the 0 degree mark or really close.

If that is good, take off the top of the ignitor housing and the rotor of the distributor will be pointing at the place on the cap that the number one plug wire should be attached.

Once you have that, the firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 and is COUNTER CLOCKWISE on the cap starting with the number 1 position you determined above.

I hope that helps, if not, post what you dont understand and I will work from there...

Autolite 2344 or 2407 for the spark plugs for the original military system, they are both discontinued so you will have to search to try and find them. Some on ebay
