Hey guys, so I had a heat soak problem originally. Had a new starter put in and most of my wiring replaced. Grounds are solid. Had the car out for a good run several days ago and after a long run it felt like it was backfiring from the carb. It even felt like it was going to stall at times. Anyhow it got parked and now it's cranking over but not turning over. I'm not that mechanically inclined. I did take the filter off and it's squirting fuel. From there I'm stuck. It's a 454 BB holley 750 carb. Not sure what to check or do next. I tried to boost it with my other car and still nothing. I'm located in Durham, Ontario. If anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it. Don't want to have it towed to a me Hani just yet. Thank you
Pull a plug wire, stick a screwdriver in the boot and place next to a bolt on the motor.
Have someone crank the motor over and see if you have spark.
IF no... check your grounds first.
Also if no, pull the distributor cap and make sure the rotor turns as you crank the motor.
I'd try the 'fire' test myself too, first. I do it different. Just take a plug wire out and plug with it. Leave plug wire boot on spark plug and put the plug against the block. Then crank over to see if you have spark. thanks,

It could be that the distributor aka "Dizzy" hold down bolt was not secured and it walked off the tune and now needs to be reset in order to fire in the correct sequence. Backfiring is often a symptom of miss tuned cars.
