Just put a different engine in my 1966 mustang project car. I am getting spark, there is fuel going in the carb. The car cranks over, but just not firing up. Firing order is correct for 289 stock. One question i am firing up the engine without headers or manifold ? Anybody know if this can be a problem with firing up the car ?

Just to let ya all know. . i bought new headers, installed them today. Tried cranking. . nope. . added a little starter fluid and WALA. . Fired up. Set the timing to 6, since its a stock engine.. cranks up all the time now. Probably a compression thing.. it was kinda farting without the headers, but not starting.
