Complete! but not starting.

So I got everything installed today. The distributor is a modern electronic ignition system that the company FSI makes. It looks just like the original distributor, but the spark rod is no longer active and it's got sweet modern guts. I had to run another 10 gauge wire from the battery to the new starter switch, mount the coil, ground a few wires and find TDC on the first cylinder. All is good, right? Wrong. After trying to get it started for about twenty minutes it backfired. A true sign of unhappiness. So my buddy Mark Ford may be on his way here tomorrow to figure out what I'm unable to. Sure does look sweet though! Sigh...
