Quote: But it's not running - just a lot of backfiring through the carburetor. I don't know yet if it's valve timing or ignition timing related. I did find the distributor vacuum pot leaks, but that shouldn't stop it from starting.
I hestitate to suggest this, but is it 180 out of time? Since it's popping thru the carb, it's firing the plug with the intake valve open... That's 180 out isn't it? Intake instead of compression stroke? Or is my head on crooked again...
