I put a 350 from a 1993 buick roadmaster, in my 1993 chevy truck I'm
getting fire but it wont start. I had to rebuild distributer because it
was banged up, so i took guts out of my chevy distributer and put them
in the buick houseing, as the buick houseing was bigger where it bolts
to the intake. still trying to get it to start?

There is a black wire that goes from the battery + terminal to the battery junction block (not the one that goes to the starter solenoid). A red wire runs from the BJB to FUSIBLE LINK A (14 GA-RUST).
There is a PPL (purple?) wire that runs from terminal A of the ignition switch to the S terminal of the starter solenoid. If you turn the ignition switch to START, the starter should, well, start. If not, the solenoid is ng.
Do a system test with a diagnostic scan tool and check for any trouble codes> Do a compression test> Check valve timing make sure that when #1 cylinder is firing the piston is at TDC.> Chech for vacuum leaks > check for exaust back pressure (plugged catalytic converter)>good luck
from the driver seat , it is on right side of engine, at bottom, in front of the trans bell housing. If it clicks fast when you turn the key, tap on the solenoid and the starter. If it has single click , probably starter problem or solenoid, replace both.
you may have the firing order wrong
look on the intake manifold you should see the firing order
it should be 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
on each side of the intake there are number 1-3-5-7 on one side and 2-4-6-8 on the other side
replace the fuel pump. it is internally shorted
by hitting the gas tank it jars the pump enough to make it run,then it shorts out agin and shuts off also perlace the fuel filter when u replace the fuel pump
common problem happens alot
