    Hey guys I'm really in need of some help .here's what I got I bought a 84 d150 a couple years ago timing had jumped so I pulled it apart put in a cam lifter set ( mild towing cam) and elderbrock intake and carb. Seem to run fine but when u push the gas taking off normal driving it would spit back and shut off so I changed spark plugs set timing made sure timing advance was working it all was fine so I put a new holly 4 bbl 600 carb on it now is a little better so I drove it for a year or so now I have a new built 318 in it all I reused was carb intake and dizzy and coil still has the same problem and I'm lost plzz someone help I did just order a msd coil and new distributer haven't put them in yet

    what did you set the timing to? i don't know if i would necessarily trust any stickers you see under the hood. sometimes you just need to go by where it runs best timing wise. also do you know which type ignition system it has?

    so did you rebuild the engine or get a new one? does it run/rev find when in park or neutral or does it spit out the carb?
