Did you ever solve this issue? What your describing is what Iam currently going thru on my 302 Roller install. One thing I did find is that my carter electric fuel pump was putting out over 8psi, and from what I've read, the 1406 Edelbrock carb like 4.5. psi

So I put in a FPR, but Iam still having issues.

When you set your timing to normal setting hook up a vacuum gauge manifold side
try and start it & record the reading! Now do the same thing with timing set high try and see what the reading is before it starts! if vacuum reading is higher then your cam could be off or your lifters could be adjusted wrong.

When you primed the eng was oil flowing to all your rocker arms ?

Whats a dizzy? Do you mean distributor ? Im getting old

My 87 5.0 won't run unless timed to about 50 TDC

Need help for the experts My 87 ford 5.0 won't run at all unless timed to about 50 TDC... Tripple checked all the normal specs. Firing order , TDC and the marks on the damper are right, I removed the distributor and verified the one tooth off theory - I went as far as to yank off the timing cover and verified that the timing marks are aligned then changed the set anyway. Nothing works - I finally resorted to moving the spark plug wires all over one to where #1 wire is now on the #8 post. This is the only way it will idle - as it idles if I adjust the timing to attempt to retard it to anywhere normal it dies every time.
