Re: Help engine not turning over
Tim...I had the EXACT same problem after I put in my 360. In my case...I removed the front grill for ease of engine install. When I pluged the headlight(among other things) plug back into the firewall I buggered up one pin in the plug. The pin that provides "+" to the coil after you release the key.
Easy check: check the voltage at the coil with the key in the "start" position...should be around 12v. Then check the voltage after you let go of the key(in the run position)...should be something less than 12(6-9). My guess is you are not getting juice in the run position for some reason.
