    Exclamation engine won't start after swap please help

    Recently my 350 in my 76 truck started making a knock so I pulled it. I put in a 86 350 everything is hooked up and the engine turns, however it doesn't start or make any attempt too. I the things I thought to check where spark and fuel, the engine was receiving both, but it never seems to ignite even with starting fluid there's not even a pop. Please help it would be much appreciated thanks.

    You probably have the distributor out of time and firing on the exhaust stroke and not the compression stroke.
