I put a 305 chevy engine in my 84 coupe. It used to run and then it all of a sudden stoped I changed the timing chain and put on a rebuilt Holley 750 wit vacum secondaries and a new distributor It will run on starting fluid but not on its own ,the jets are spraying ,but it will only run while im spraying starting fluid in it ? Anyone know why ?

Timing could be off enough to where it wont run with gas. Sounds like it still isnt getting the gas to the intake.

Yeah the timing is off , but it will run when I turn the distributor just right and there is a puddle of gas in the intake
