I have a 1976 Dodge 100 series truck 360 2barrel.
I purchased this truck from a guy that said it had been ran in adeep mudhole. He was young and broke the Carb trying to remove it go figure. Well after a new Holley it ran so so missed real bad. I have replaced the Timing gears and chain everything is in time I removed the valve covers to verify this and nothing it won't start. I have tested everything the ballast resistor, the coil, electronic control module,distributor cap wires, rotor, and now a rebuilt distributor and still nothing???? I had a guy that works in the truck division where I work come by and verify that I had everything right and all checks good somebody help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have tried 3 different ballast resistor and everyone that I have tried and tested all read different from what the repair manual says they should read thanks. ???

I have had problems with rebuilt distrubutors in the past.

Are you getting fuel?

You only need three things to start: Fuel/air, spark, and compression.

Have you run a compression test?

Have you checked for spark?

Is the carb providing fuel?

If you have all of the above, the problem has to be timing. If you are missing any one of the above, that is your problem.
