Check the inside of the distributor cap for carbon tracking or moisture..Check the rotor to make sure it has not burned through to ground. Also check the coil itself to make sure it has not burned out. Check for power at the coil connection (should have 12v feed). Crank the engine over with the cap removed and make sure that the rotor turns normally and is not "stuttering". (if there's a problem there, it's the timing chain)
If everything there checks out, Replace the white control unit in the distributor (no tests for that). Also check the pickup underneath the plate to make sure it does not have any broken wires. I casn't get too specific because I'm not there, but that is exactly what I'd look at. One or more items will help you. Good luck!

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

Backfiring just before it starts


Check to see if you have a crossed plug wire on truck. Also check for a cracked insulator on a spark plug or faulty spark plug wire. Check for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold, throttle body,or vacuum hose. Hope this will help you.

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.

Swap a 86 350 into a 91 camaro with a 305 TBI


good idea, use 350 block,305 heads &intake.the reason is, if the 91 305 heads are 4 bolts in center of valve cover the are what you call vortec heads,they have better flow.the tbi will respond better &still have bettergas milage than old style heads.the 350 block will add more overall power.you shouldnt have any problems doing so,you will notice a diff.have fun, good luck.
