Replaced the manifold, (hogged out inlet from carb and inlet tubes to head and now won't start. Oh, biggest thing, I took out dizzy.... Thought I put back correctly, maybe I didn't how do I rectify this. Another thing I can't do is bleed all the brakes, some nipples won't flow at all, won't even flow with nipples out of caliper. Any advice or someone who wants to wrench. Started as a rolling tub and I have done everything from dropping engine in to last detail. Long Beach, Ca. If ya wanna wrench!

Put the engine at #1 TDC. There are multiple ways of doing this, I think the easiest is to take off the valve cover and rotate the engine until the mark on the timing chain gear at the front of the head is _exactly_ under the oil galley tube.

Take the cap off the dizzy and you should see the rotor pointed at the mark on the top of the dizzy case. If it isn't, remove the dizzy and re-insert so that it does (you may have to rotate it slightly). Button things back up and try again.

Brakes

It sounds like your brake hoses are old and collapsed. Replace them with new ones, metal lines are a nice upgrade (IMHO of course, and try again.

When you bleed the brakes, do you have an assistant pumping and then holding the brake pedal?

Cheers!

hey i know when i did the brakes for the first time on my 02, the front calipers wouldnt bleed all the way, there was always a bubble of air. i had to pump the brake several times, until i figured out i had the calipers switched. so make DOUBLE sure that they are on the right side. there ya go.

for bleeding brakes. For some reason, mine do the same thing. Jenn's car (same year, same everything, including teflon lines) will bleed easily.

Get a pressure bleeder ($50) or if you have a mityvac and are cheap like me, get a cap that fits the brake reservoir, hook a line up to it, and use the mityvac to pressurize it.

works every time.
