I have a small block Chevrolet that I have been trying to get to daily driver status and it has crapped out on me. Right now it cranks abnormally sounds like the starter wont disengage, but it does not turn over right away it will seem to catch which slows the cranking speed dims the lights then turns over and dies. I have replaced the starter and shimmed it to the 1/8" that is required battery has been recharged I replaced the carburetor fuel filter and I have new spark plugs. I am about to install and wires I am hoping but I do not feel like it will fix it. I replaced the starter because it was become difficult to start I believe because the headers were to close and may have over heated it, new red top optima that I had charged before I installed it, replaced the carburetor with a known working one because the old one I noticed had fuel coming out of the choke plate and hitting the hood while it was open. So I also am replacing the spark plug in case the old ones had gotten fouled with fuel. I am thinking fault starter or fuel pump is acting up. The abnormal starting also makes me think it could be the timing chain. Someone please tell me what I can do I am lost.
have the same problem?
