Truck won\'t run! Plz help me. Well, I just got my 81' 305(carburated) back into my truck and now I can't seem to get it running. The dist was 180 degrees out but I got that figured out now for sure. The engine rolls over and will start if you hold it floored but even if you hold it to the floor it will slowly die. Also, there some flame coming from the headers. Neighbour said he thinks its retarded too much. I guess which would make sense because its not burning all the fuel and therefore its coming out into the headers. Just wanted to check with you guys before I do anything stupid.
