    This is suppose to not be able to happen, but I had a friend that put the dist. in 180 out. It was bolted in and had spark and fuel but wouldn't run. It should slide right in. Check that.

    yeah i understand that now i noticed that but it is in the right way so that means it has to be in timing i don't understand why it would not start. i have all the spark plugs in right and the distrib. is in right so i don't know what it is i feel like giving up man i am so lost right now. i don't understand it started and it was on i had to turn it off because my dad said it was lose so we turned it off he pulled it out for some reason and then put it back in and it slide right in after that it did not want to start could i have lost compression from that? could i have messed up the distributor? there is gas becasue i un hooked the fuel pressure reg and gas came out from there i have spark from the cables well tested the only thing left is to change the spark plugs that is the only thing i can think of
