help me and my regal

hey i got a 85 buick regal and i swapped in a 1988 camaro iroc-z 350 and then converted it to carb,

but heres my problem it won't start, all it does is turn over. Now i got spark and i got gas and i got air,

and my compression is 150 to 145 psi in all the cyinders


i got edelbrock performer eps and a rebuilt holley 600.

It doesn't even spit out of the carb or backfire, all it does is crank over and over and over agian, does't even feel like its trying to start.

please help

Check to make sure the distributor isn't 180* out. That will do this.

You need an older model distributor, one that's not computer controlled.
