OK, I have a new Wes ingram Spica, Rebuilt injectors, new coil, points, cap rotor, condenser, and plug wires.

I have new gas and filters, the pump timing is set, the ignition is dead on TDS, I have good spark and new plugs but the thing will still not run, even with ether.

What in the hell have I missed?:confused::confused::confused:

If it won't initially fire on ether, you've probably got an ignition problem.

Double check the firing order and spark.

Also, after installing a new injection pump, you should prime the fuel pipes by cranking the engine with the spark plugs out for about 30 seconds or so, then check for fuel in the intakes.

It runs

It is alive. As it is better to be silent and thought a fool rather than open ones mouth and remove all doubt I take the 5th on the stipid bonehead move I made:D.

Confession

Although the plug wire rubber housings were around the plugs, the rubber was the only thing touching the plugs............:mad:
