Also do you have 12v at the coil+ while cranking and when the key is in ON position

We got it sorted!! i was fiddling around a little and used a bit of Nulon 'Start Ya Bastard' in the carbs and that helped it want to fire EVEN more and almost run on this alone, which made me think its not likely timing but instead fuel. checking all my lines i found a small leak between the pump and the rail which i clamped up with some new hose. It now RUNS!! must've been a fuel pressure leak, i mean, i runs horribly because theres no exhaust and hasn't been timed, but i'll get to that soon :) thanks for the help here guys, i'll no doubt be back soon in this thread when the next problem occurs!
