    Truck won\'t turn over

    My Friend has a 86 k5 stock with exception of headers and exhaust. truck wouldn't start yesterday and appeared to be a dead battery (5 years old) So we replaced that and started it up. The timing appeared off a little so we adjusted that. This AM came out and she wouldn't start there was Juice but I am starting to think it's the starter or the HEI. Any feedback would be great. I don't think it's the alternator.

    Could be the bad ground, cap, rotor or starter could not handle the new battery. Also, check the battery cables too.

    make sure timing is not too far advanced, how did you adjust the timing ?
