I have a 75' 350 engine which I've just installed a new cam, chain, lifters etc. In the assembly process I was referencing a couple of manuals. Ok, as I try to start this thing it either spits through the carb or blows out the exhaust. In trying to adjust the timing, I cannot seem to find where the thing will actually run. I thought I dropped the distributor in at top dead center, but could I be 180 off? The pointer and rotor were in the correct position. By the way this is an older HEI distributor and my compression is about 10.75-1, I guess I'm a little nervous.
