I have replaced the 327 in the car and fired it up today. It ran.............
....for a few seconds and then spluttered out of life and blew back through the carb. Tried to start it again and it didn't want to play.
I wonder if I have the rockers set too tight. I tightened down on the nut until it was difficult to turn with my fingers and then gave it another 1/2 turn, as I have been taught, but I wonder if I should only tighten until I loose the slap on the rocker (up and down) and then give it a half turn. I'm sure the timing will need to be adjusted, but I think it's close enough for now to start it.
Any ideas? BTW, I have fuel!!
