Hi, we rebuilt this engine and it is really hard to start. We have to push the gas pedal to the floor and hold it and just continue to keep cranking. Eventually it will start after it spudders and backfires and then it will start. Even then it sounds like its not getting any gas

First thing to do is cross A & B on the aldl and turn tehkey on and get the codes. You count the flashes then come back to the site and seewhat it brings up if anything. Then replace your fuel filter and fuel pressure. If you have disconnected any wires check them alll again to make sure they are connected. Also check the vacuum line going to the MAP sensor on the firewall. That could be bad or disconnected.
