bet its timed up wrong , all plug leads corrcetly fitted and to correct numbered plugs ?
i would start again with the timing light and double check everything before you start it again
I have triple checked the wires are all correct, brand new plugs, the timing should be at about 10* at idle with the vac advance line removed from the carb and plugged correct?
i will check for leaks
i will double check the valves before i start it up, thanks
