ok so i put a 347 in my car from frpp today. got everything buttoned up. i go to crank the starter (which a couple years old) and it sounds like its straining. the motor turns slowly, but enough to combust, i know this because it backfired REALLY loud. i havent checked the voltage of the battery. but its obviously gettin air fuel and spark. my guess would bet that the battery (which has sat for close to 3 months) has enough voltage to crank the starter, but not enough to crank it over fully. im not sure tho. i really dont have money for a starter and im pretty sure thats not the problem. or my timing could be off. not sure. oh well. any hints would be good.
