Re: Well, it is running now. New cam in
Chris, when you lined your timing marks up did you put the dot together? If you did, and then installed the distributor, you are 180* out. On a small block, when the dots are pointing together, that is #6 cylinder at top dead center. When you line the marks up and install the chain, you have to turn the crank one full turn to get the cam dot at 12 and the crank dot at 12. That will put you at #1 cylinder at TDC. Just a thought. I didn't know this for the longest time. I always wondered why my car wouldn't start and the dist. was always 180* out.
