New 360 starting, wont stay running
This is a very stressfull time around my house. I have been waiting for this motor since the end of November, it got here last week and I have been diligent in my installation and taking care of its needs, it owes me a start and run. But alas it wont run... I bought a "turn-key" remanufactured 360 AMC from remaufactured.com (NEVER under any circumstances buy anything from this company), they built, ran, and timed the motor prior to shipping it. I installed it (with the usual complications, which have been mostly worked out) and hooked everything up. The first time I tried to start it, it backfired a bunch through the carb so I figured it was timing, after a little while I noticed that the 1 and 5 wires were swapped. So now, it will run and rev high (4K rpm) and then cut out. If I give it gas it will run a little longer but will not even come close to stay running on its own. It has an edlebrock performer carb 4bl, HEI dizzy, its a 77 cj5 and all the fuel system (tank to carb) was new right before I pulled the 304 out. Incidentally, the 304 was running and the jeep was very driveable prior to me removing the 304 so I have to think its something with the motor and not the rest of the vehicle. My thoughts are that: I have spark, and probably decent timing otherwise it wouldnt rev like that, I think its fuel somehow but I have no idea where to start. I did put in brand new gas too by the way. I have posted a 30s video to show what it does when I crank it. BTW, I know its leaking under the front end its a power steering couple leak. Thanks for your help.
