    #6 and #8 won't fire

    Here's the story. I just took apart my whole intake to fix an oil leak. I got that fixed and got everything back together. But now, those 2 cylinders won't fire. The only reason I believe that is because of the temperature of the header tubes. All the others are hot after about 20 seconds of the truck running, but I can actually touch those. I double checked all the wires, and they're all tight on the plugs and on it distributor. At the moment, I'm completely stuck.

    Anyone had this problem, or can anyone shed some light on the situation?

    Please and thanks
    Kyle

    It worked perfectly before I took it apart. Unless I broke something..

    It doesnt matter if everything is working perfectly before you took it all apart....

    It is very possiable that it is the distrib, maybe get a buddy and swap distribs and see if that one works.. then go from there.. Spark plugs are fine??
