Sounds like you have the distributor on tooth advanced. Pull the cap and with the timing mark at TDC make sure the rotor is pointing at #1 spark plug wire. If not, either pull the distributor and set it so it does point at #1 or rotate the wires one spot.
carb? what year is this? it only takes 3 things to start. 1: good engine (compression) 2; good spark at all cylinders, yes, check them all. 3: and good fueling.
what country , what year, what engine option. "displacement" ?????????? i bet its not an carb car, but? never seen ever one on planet earth. sold since 1994 to pressent all over the world, just a clue.
The blue smoke is OIL, coming from bad seals in the valves. It drains into the cylinders overnight and when you start the car it burns the oil off. This is probably fouling your plugs and if backfiring will fould the carburator. The miss firing is due to the age and most likely the timing of your engine, along with fouled plugs and carb.
yes the fuel filter needs to be replaced in a regular basis. it is locaded in de carburator,all need isto remove the fuel line from carburator and the fitting in between the line and carburator thats where the filter is.
There are special electronic fuel pumps you can get for this kind of conversion that wont put to much fuel pressure in the carb and blow the bowls.
As long as the distributer is vacuum advance and for a 302 it should be able to work. The main difference will be the firing order on the truck engine may be different. So you have to make sure your #1 cylinder is at top dead center and route the post on the cap its pointing at to the #1 cylinder and go from there.
The intake and carb you have should also work.
No you do need a diagram, remove the airfilter, have some one start the car with high idle rpm and spray in the throat of the carb and also on the outside, that will do it, if not get a carburator kit, and remove clean, change gaskets of the carburator
