1986 B2000 -New Timing belt, now a problem!
I just replaced the timing belt on the old B2000.
She ran beautifully before the timing belt change, just following regular maintenance recommendations.
I followed the instructions a friend printed out from ALLDATA-Online. Everything went smoothly, except it would not fire up after I was done. It backfired through the carb a few times and smelled of fuel coming out the exhaust.
During the service, I removed the distributor, so I though I had reinstalled it wrong. So I check the distributor about 10 times and it was fine, My timing light showed I was firing exactly when it should (BTDC of compression stroke). I pulled apart the front of the engine for a second time and checked cam timing and ignition timing and still wont fire.
There is a ton of fuel in the carb throats, and the spark plugs smelled of a lot of fuel.
I checked the spark at the plugs, and sure enough I am getting spark at the end of the plug wires...but it is not starting!
It doesnt even sound like it is trying to start.
What the heck am I missing!??!?!?
Thanks in advance!
