I'd like to thank the great folks who responded to my ignition problem. One
thing I neglected, makes me embarrassed, but...
The left bank of cylinders turns out to be 2-4-6, NOT!!! 4-5-6. And the right
side is 1-3-5, NOT!!! 1-2-3...
You'd think it's pretty obvious, since the info is stamped on top of the turkey
Lesson learned. Sometimes it's the simple things that you can slip up when
doing a complex task. As I was scratching my head looking at the engine bay, it
suddenly hit me. I re-did the wires, and she started up the first time...
Imagine installing A/C in, around, and under the car when it's 100 degrees
outside. There some sort of irony there...
