1974 pontiac 400 big block WONT start
So I recently bought a 1977 Firebird Formula, with a 1974 pontiac 400 big block (got the year off the rear engine code). It ran okay okay when I bought it and now it wont start.
The engine has HEI, a edlebrock performer pontiac Intake, and stock carb (for now).
The engine fires a bit then the starter disengages (really annoying), but just does not want to run,
I checked the timing and spark plug wire configuration, that is good. Gaped the sparkplugs to .04". The distrubutor cap is new, wires are yellow accell and look in good shape..
Does anyone have any experiance with these engines and some sugestions? Thanks
