Welll Replaced a set of heads on a 68 cougar 302 4 barrel all back together and no start! Im sure I have the distributor in correct I have spark and can smell fuel and no start! I reused the carb gaskets on the edelbrock 600 witch were only a few weeks old could that have anything to do with it?? Any suggestions would be great!

I would check compression, the lifters may not have bleed down after the rockers were installed. That would not allow valves to close fully.

What does it do? Crank over, but not 'cough'? Not spin over at all?
