|jxhinoj||I had the same problem it was 180deg off. Bring #1 up to tdc then pop your distributor cap off if your rotor is pointing to # 6 than it's 180 deg. off. Take your distruberator off and rotate it 180deg. with the rotor facing the number #1 it should turn on. To advance your timming turn the distributor counterclock wise.|

327 timing ??
When setting the timing you find top dead center by bumping thr engine over until air blow out around your finger. Then take a socket and breaker bar line up mark on 10 BTDC. Pull cap to see where rotor is pointing. Make sure plug wires are correct at this time. Here is a diagram of a Chevy V8 points distributor Google Image Result for http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/ASEMaster35yrs/2010-03-17_090540_chevy_v8_firing_order_diagram.jpg It should be close enough to start and set timing.

|cookieman||I have done all that several times I set hydralic lifters at zero then 3/4 turn someone said 1/4 to 1/2 is better I am familiar with ignition timing not so much valve timing would the valve timing being off have same symtoms as timing being off I have never heard a motor spin with valve timing off ?? also I know just what you mean it acts like it is 180 out butit isn't if I need to I can pull cover and check mark alignment on cam and crank Thanks ,Michael|

|68NovaSS||First things I would check are timing, make sure that #1 is at TDC on the compression stroke, recheck plug wires, and ensure valves aren't too tight. Popping through the carb sounds like 180 degrees out.|

327 timing ??
Rebuilt 327 points distributer, ballist resister, quad carb,stock manifold, # 1 top dead center, 18436572 clockwise will not start( popping,) back acting like timing off I have replaced points,condensor, double checked top dead center checked getting fire, double checked valve clearnace hydralic lifters any suggestions what else could be ,Thanks ,Michael
