Re: [DML] 911, engine running on 3 cylinders MORE INFO

thanks for your help mike. 
i imported the car to the uk, and just got it road legal. i had the
whole fuel system replaced, which made the car run, and today i tried
to repair the last problem, the tachometer (so i thought.) i tried to
use a dwell meter & timing light to read the rpm, i dont know much
about it, but i thought if the meter could read the rpm, the gauge
would be faulty, and if the meter couldnt, it would be the sender. but
the inductive pickup couldnt get a signal. checking the plugs
(earthing on the block) revealed cylinders 1,2 & 3 have no spark. 4 5
& 6 have MASSIVE sparks. 
i had read on the forum that people had thought the car was slow when
they first drove it, so i thought nothing was wrong!
