    Not firing on 1 & 2. Compression is 150 and 145. Tested the spark w an in-line spark checker and both have juice. Checked the plug gap. Spark plugs are new.
    Where from here? Thanks

    More info would be good. More details about the car and circumstances.

    63 s3 stock motor 32/34 Weber Pertronix Lucas coil. Running rough so replaced cap rotor wires and plugs. Still runs like crap. Pull the wires on 1 then 2 - runs the same. Thanks

    Compression, fuel and spark at the right time usually makes things go bang. Any chance that you swapped the plug wires for #1 and #2 cylinders?

    Look for vacuum leak on intake runners or plumbing that only serves affected cylinders, Shannon
