Finally got engine reassembled and into car, after new cam and manifold. Have tried to start the engine and believe that I have TDC and no.1 post correct. (390 FE motor). Engine seems to want to start but them backfires thru carb. Anyone have a hint or suggestion on what is wrong, I believe that the backfire is timing but think I have it close.
