You still don't get it...
And I don't have graphics to show you how it misaligns...

There is a SINGLE pin on a distributor gear,
That pin is NEVER drilled directly center of the gear tooth pattern.
So when you get the gear on backwards, you split teeth and you are AT LEAST 1/2 tooth off in rotor phasing.

Now, there are still guys that don't get rotor phasing, swear it doesn't exist since THEY have never heard of it before...
Although about every serious ignition company addresses it,
Distributor gears are marked with a 'Front' or rotor nose location to get them in the shaft correctly,
So just because some guy can't get his mind around it doesn't mean it 'Doesn't' exist...

I really don't care *IF* you believe it or not,
Not my call to educate the peanut gallery.

I'm here to help out the OP, and other than that, it's all just white noise...

Good reading but totally off topic of the original question. Sounds like its more of the alignment between trigger wheel in relation to the rotor.

Well hey, look at this: http://www.junkyardgenius.com/igniti...phasing01.html

I don't know how things went from cam/crank timing to dizzy set up but it might give the OP one more thing to look for.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
