Orange and white.. I took a pic of the wiring diagram and it shows orange.white to #3 injector. You might have the wrong plug in there?

Finally figured out the problem after removing and checking and replacing every hose and wire and connection - it was the wire that runs from the distributor cap to the coil. I bought a brand new set of plug wires from Centerline and that wire has one end pre-bent at 90 degrees, BUT the bend starts too soon, so the lead was too short beyond the bend and never made contact with the coil. I re-bent the lead so that it is about an inch longer past the 90 degree bend and she starts like a champ. Whew! Now I can move on to the other 99 items that need replacing, fixing, cleaning, etc.
