alright guys, I’m back with an update. I’ve got the engine ready to fire, in the car and wired up temporarily. We were cranking it last night and it just wouldn’t quite fire. Getting plenty of fuel and good spark to the cylinders. When playing with the distributor while cranking, once in a while we’d find a sweet spot where it would try to take off but just couldn’t quite do it. It’s sputtering air and gas out the top of the carb. Am I a tooth off on timing? Maybe 180° out? I thought I had it stabbed correctly, but maybe not. On the Cadillac Facebook page someone said that their timing marks on the gears were not lined up with each other - rather, they were both positioned at 12 o’clock. Everything I saw or read when putting the engine together said to line them up, so that’s how they’re set. Was I wrong? Thanks guys!
