So I have a 71 CJ5. It has a Buick V6 Dauntless 225. I had to pull the engine apart to replace all the gaskets as it leaked like a sieve. Put it back together checked the timing. It cranks over and almost fires but will not run. The distributor has a vacuum advance. As it turns over there is no dragging. How ever it is back firing threw the headers.(P.S. There is no mufflers on it waiting for them to be shipped). I've tried all sort of stuff. Hoping there might be a simple answer that I might have overlooked. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
