    could be a number of things if youve jus done the head gasket,throtle cable poorly adjusted?need new leads if youve got an arc,firing order correct?timing out a tooth?plugs tight?try these 1st

    after that, I would check ignition timing and check for leaks in the intake system.

    (fuel lines fitted right ?)

    Re: engine help asap please :(

    it would make the engine run out of balance, so yeah, maybe, i'f you have spares, i'd swap the whole igniton system over,also, have you ruled out anything mechanical, i.e done a compression test?
