Question Hi im a newb to this forum

Help with a inline 6 is needed please backfires alot and wont start doesnt have fire on Number1 plug and the distributor was restabed what now?also i ran fuel pump to ignition fuse panel so when truck is on the pump is running non stop is this good? its a 1986 truck with a 1995 motor i was told im not sure it is though.
im looking for a complete break down of the motor to look at online not to buy. truck to if it can be found the motor had fuel injection and someone put a 1 barrel carb on it. it was running but after fooling with the timing it stoped running and backfires like its gona blowup.the guy doesnt want to spend much money on the piece of junk. cap, rotor, plugs, fuel pump all new.Also it looks like someone ripped the carborator apart i went get one in a junk yard but the truck does the same thing with that one on it to so i dont know if the carborators are working i know one of them is getting to much gas but im not a carb specialist.

Re: Hi im a newb to this forum

"Not",
Are you sure you have the distributor correctly aligned? If it is off just a tooth or two you might get it to start by turning the distributor while cranking the motor. If you don't have a remote starter you will need someone to turn the ignition while you turn the distributor. Otherwise you will need to find and align timing marks, get #1 cyl at TDC and then look at the rotor to see that it is pointing at #1 position on the distributor cap. Then check for fire at #1 sparkplug.

Re: Hi im a newb to this forum

ok yes I rechecked the firing order and timing and i restab the distributor like you said it has fire when i push the distributor toward the back of the truck the spark is very slow and almost white Can you help me now? and spark plugs are getting black which is a fuel problem but it cant be fixed if i cant start the truck i was thinking the coil went out but if i have fire i dont think its that please im in desperate need to help this guy the truck was running now nothing
this engine is a 4.9 with auto trans motor was replaced by someone that didnt know much i think i adjusted the timing while it was running and now it barely fires
