    The engine kinda makes a realy slow chugging sound and shortly dies after i start it.Two days ago i was working on my timing(which is still way off)and its been parked since.When i first started it today it sounded rough and it died whil i was backing up.now it just does the above.You think its still a timing problem or fuel?

    its a 350 with a holly carb(not sure which model) But i think i figured it out.There was a [censored]-load of play in my timing chain among some other little things...
