Just got the motor all together and ran into a major problem...THE DAMN THING WON'T CATCH. Sounds like its kinda tryin, but no dice. The only things that I can think of offhand that I did wrong are that I 1) have the wrong spark plugs (used the stock 302 plugs in a dart sr. head) or 2) tightened down the rockers too tight (went based on rocker play. I tightened them just until each rocker didn't have any play then another half turn). My setup is whats listed in my profile still. Anybody who knows what to try or lives on the southwest side of chicago and wants to help...lemme know.

thanks,
Nick:mad:

instead of tightening them 1/2 turn, try 1/4 turn, same thing happened to my friend and it worked. I hope that helps.
