Hi guys, this is my first post so ...HELLO Everyone!
I have installed a rebuilt motor in my 67 GTO and I can not get the darn thing to start. Hoping to get some assistance here. I ordered it as a short block. 67 YS.
400 .030 12 CC dished pistons
670 heads, roller rockers. 1.5
68 grind on cam.
850 Quadrajet. mid 70's model
HEI converted Distributor was rebuilt and tuned in, all new internals.
I adjusted the rockers per instruction, basically TDC on #1 and did the adjustment and the rotated it to 6 TDC and did the other valves.
When #1 hit TDC I have about 130lbs compression,
Engine cranks and then back fires, carb floods which causes a small fire
I have spark, however I do have 1 question about this, will the stock plug wires work with HEI. I would think I would at least be able to get it to run.
I have verified the firing order several times, readjusted the valves a few times as well. I rotated the wires by 1 and still will not run.
Everything seems to be correct but I just dont know what else to check or do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
