I have an old 460, checked compression 120 lbs each cylinder, changed plugs, wires around ect, it is missing, when I take the number one, two, three, and four spark plug wires off, it doesnt change the way it runs at all, only when I pull 5 and 6 the engine drags, I pulled valve cover off everyting is clean and vavles are moving, any ideas where to start trouble shooting on this issue, Thanks

Welcometo ATF!! Im somewhat confused, youre saying its only running on 2 cylinders?? Anytime you pull a wire off, it should skip. You do have the wires on in the right order?

Any luck this this problem my 460 has the exact same problem. I think it is the intake manifold i took the manifold off and the front intake flange is not ligned up with the other flanges, it is set off the head by about 1/8, I was told there is a specific torke pattern does anyone know what it might be. Also the firing order is stamped on the block but which cylinder is number 1 the rad end or the driver end?
any help would be greatly appricated, This tractor ran smooth as silk before I took off the exaust manifold to weld a pipe on to support the muffler.

I finally got some parts and replaced the exhaust / intake manifold gasket. chased all the threads and installed the manifold. The old girl started right up and ran smooth and quiet. Must have been a vacume leak. The plugs are wired with number 1 at the rear of the engine, I tried wiring it the opposite way with no good results. Anyway back up and running, next project replacing the wiring and installing a block heater or two gets pretty cold up here in Thunder Bay.
