ok so im in the process of putting it all back together, i put what i think were the correct plugs into the coils and all that (this shouldnt matter should it?) and im also trying to start it, but everytime i do it just turns over but doesnt start, but when i stood it up straight it popped and smoked for a second then back fired once....do the plug wires have to go into the coils a certain way? like 1 and 2 together and 3 and 4 together or 1 and 3 together and 2 and 4 together? and what about the lil plugs that go into the top of each coil? yes i know ur supposed to fill it up but i didnt i, did still use stabil though

let me add that the popping is like a pop with a ppppssshhht like air escaping really fast then smoke and i smell gas or something

The wires for the #1 and #4 cylinders come off the same coil. #2 and #3 come off the same coil. You also need the coils plugged into the correct feed wires. Otherwise you'll have what you're experiencing.

Mine smoked like a bastard for a little while too. Might be a carb setting or maybe just blowing the crap out of it from sitting.
