Ok so Im stumped. I installed a 395 stroker in my 70 mach 1. It is 13.5:1 compression, so i set up the fuel system for e85 due to the amount of octane needed. When trying to start the engine for its initial start up and break in I could not get it to fire. The distributer is set at 10*. I tested the coil and found I had orange spark so I changed out the coil as a process of elimination. I then tried to fire it again and still got not much, just a little sputter but no backfires nada. I went ahead and pulled all the plugs and rechecked the gaps and they are all at .040. Adjusted the distributer some both ways. At 1 point I was able to get the engine to run for about 5 seconds if I held the throttle open about halfway. I have a petronix points conversion installed in the distributer. So my question is, where is the issue. The only thing left is to change the distrubter. Cap rotor and plugs are new, they came off my 351w that I just pulled out of the mach. They had less than 40 miles on them. Any thoughts would be great. The e85 is set up properly so its not a fuel issue. E85, carb, lines, pressure all new and installed.
