    Ok did the whole swapl Everything is in. I'm getting fuel and air but no spark. Engine fired a few days ago where we picked it up with all the components I currently have. All fuses are good. Even ecu fuse. Tried 2 different ecu's still same result. Has all obd-1 sensors on the engine. Any help would be mucho appreciated.

    I had starting problems and it turned out to be a wiring problem. I'd check to see that everything is wired correctly.

    thanks man. i'm getting spark and everything now. now i just don't have power going to the ecu for some reason? no matter if i have an ecu plugged in or not, it does the same thing. I'll search the board some more. any other help is appreciated.

    ok i'll look for help again. I'm still having a problem with this thing. It's gettings spark, i've laid out all 4 plugs and attached them to the plug wires and watched them all fire. It's getting fuel. The plugs get covered in fuel after a couple of starts. It's building compression. But the thing just will not start to save it's life. Checked codes and I'm getting a code 10 is all. But that shouldn't keep the car from starting i wouldn't think. It won't even run on starter fluid. So i'm thinking either cam timing or distributor timing. I've searched and searched and fine different plug orders. Currently i have it
    2-4
    1-3
    if look directly at the distributor cap from the passenger side. Any help is much appricated. This thing is driving me nuts.
