    Yep, the flaming carb is always a blast. Had that a couple months ago with my holley when my timing was WAY off and we were trying to get it to start.

    LOL i agree... nearly burnt my eyebrows off when i was first timing it... then when i pulled the dist and started it up the flames got all the way up to my hood and just about set my junk on fire.

    accel pump is the culprit along with timing.
