Two grounds on the intake manifold and two grounds on the driver side of the head. All are on.

Ecu is plugged all the way in. I'll pull my distributor and do the 360 and see where that leaves me.

If the timing chain matches up with both cams and the crank and the distributor point at #1 (or maybe a hair past) I wouldn't think that you would have cam and distributor 180 degree out of phase problem.

you wouldn't think so, but I've swapped a handful of dizzy engines and probably 80% of the time I have to pull the dizzy and turn the engine over once.

I usually pull spark plug number 1 and rotate the engine with my thumb over the spark plug hole to make sure that I am on the compression stroke.

When I let off cranking it fires once or twice. That indicates I'm on the exhaust stroke correct?

Okay. So I'm running codes 12(maf?) and 34(knock) I'm not sure why it's throwing the knock code. It's brand new. And I'm not sure if it still is. My first start up was without the maf hooked up. I need to reset the ecu. But those are the 2 codes I pulled

I wouldnt think either of those would inhibit cranking up. Could the distruibtor have rotated within it's adjustment slots? The range of ignition timing an engine can run with is greater than the range it can crank from. At least this has seemed to be my experience. Just a guess.
