Recently rebuilt 85 rwd fleetwood brougham with ht4100....as I rebuilt it, I replaced distributor coil and ignition module precautionary. After setting timing and purring like a kitten....car sat for some time.....upon starting....it was struggling to run...feathering throttle would help but little to no power....backfiring....seemingly in a rhythm....

I have seen some posts on hall effect sensor and pickup coil but do not know enough to differentiate the advice.....also noticed someone recommending replacing distributor due to other intricate pieces may need replacing....

any help is much appreciated!!!

thank you
