Will not run, rebuilt engine installed. Engine was spun tested for compression.
distributor: using shop manual, located TDC number one and dropped in distributor shaft per book, installed dist. Preformed TDC number one check to verify it was on firing stroke and rotor lines up with number one on cap. Checked four times.
taking my time is assembled the rest of the components. Will not start up. Checked Schrader valve on fuel rail and it is pressurized. Check for spark at plugs.
so, I have fire and fuel. Triple check all connections, firing order, plug wires etc.
it finally ran but I had the gas pedal floored. Even them it was a low idle and sounded gross. Barely running. Released gas pedal and it quit running.
i am clueless now.
PS. This is seconded rebuilt engine I have done. Other engines were 3.7 V6 jeep, 350 Chevrolet, and four cylinder Pontiac.
so, not a stranger to this.
have the same problem?
