Did you get my other email?? Please help :)

I had it wired like the diagram you sent me but it still doesnt work. When I try and start it the carburator loads up and it back fires from the carburator and out the exhaust. Do I have something else wrong with the car?? Could it be bad spark plug wires??
Did you try both diagrams,,,,if you notice they had a 454 built by Pontiac and one built by Olds,,,,and they used both of them in your vehicle.
Sorry about that,,,i sent you both for the pontiac 455,,,this is for the Olds 455 and its definatly different,,,,,,sorry again. Let me know how it comes out.
Ok this one is different, I'll try it out first thing in the AM. I'll hit you back then. Thanks for your help
Sounds good,,,just let me know if you need more help.
I'll bet that the timing chain has slipped. You should run a compression test to confirm this,,,,it was very common on these engines.
