I installed a fuel pressure regulator before the Solex carb last weekend. I tried to start it and i killed the old battery. Tonight i pulled the new battery out of my Wrangler to try and get the jeep running. Well It wanted to. I got a can of starting fluid and it will "fire" but it just wont run. I tried the rotate the wires on the cap method just in case i was off. I did get a backfire out of the carb a few times and that at least let me know i was probably 180 out. So i put the wires back to where i started and then twisted the distributer around to see where i can find the spot where it will run. I previously did the "static timing" but it just didnt want to run. So i can get it to fire but not run so i am getting spark. I honestly think i just have two really bad carbs. I just cant get it to run and the starting fluid only gets it to fire for a second but nothing else.
