    A few weeks ago my car started to over heat, I was close to home so I turned right around. The car didn't get any hotter then 220, 230 but started idling rough and almost stalling at lights. Fast forward a few weeks I spent the day replacing the water pump (electric pro form, what a pos have to swap out again) everything's done so I go to start the car and it turns right over. Idled for about 30 seconds and died now I can't start the car The oil pressure seemed fine, I pulled the plugs 2 were fouled out but all others reaked of gas. It's a carb 331 high compression I only did my standard 2 taps before starting. There is spark.

    Everything is new on the car the set up has maybe 500 miles on it. A week before the over heating issue it was Dyno tuned and running awesome. Any ideas would be appreciated..

    With a carb engine problem posted in a EFI tuning forum, you're not going to get any answers. Ask the moderators to move your post to 5.0 Tech.
