I'm having a little trouble here with my 327. For background, I just had the cam replaced 2 weeks ago. A week later, while driving, the car stalled on me. I tried starting it back up and it sounded like it was flooded. I towed it back home and the next day I tried it again. Same problem right off the bat. However I happened to hold the key all of the way to the right and it stayed running. I pulled the ignition out and saw a loose wire. I fixed it and it started right up.
This weekend I took it out again. I ran it about 15 miles away and it sat for about 4 hours, i got in and it started. However, on the way home it started sputtering and finally stalled on the access road. Again flooded.
Symptoms: Fuel filter is full (no bubble), Car will start after cranking it over without giving it gas but dies again, and now it's backfiring (although that may be a different issue).
It has a Edel 4bbl manual choke 600cfm, Edel air gap intake and comp cam.
Any help diagnosing would be greatly appreciated.
Missing my Camaro!
