If it will not start and the spark, fuel and timing is good the problem is usually the plugs are fouled. I would replace the plugs and hold the gas pedal to the floor and see if it will fire if it begins to fire in this way let off the gas pedal.

That is the first thing & last thing I checked.

How did you check for spark and fuel ? How was the timing checked?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I have 45 lbs F.P pressure with gauge, & Spark at plug. I pulled timeing covers, all marks are aligned.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
Ok so your problem is most likely you do not have pulse at the injectors, I would try to spray some starting fluid in the air intake to see if it will fire just to be sure.

I'M getting fuel to th plugs.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.

Ok then I would check the compression on each cylinder to see how much compression you have. You only need fuel spark and compressed air to make a engine run and if it is not it is missing one of the three.

Thats the theory i've always used, I* haven't checked compression, because it has been

running fine, driven every day. But I,ll check it.

Ok

I appreciate your trying, but it still doesn't run. 150 lbs compression across th board
