This is a technique called spill timing line up the timing marks
remove the pipe to the injector on #1 Cylinder loosen the mounting / adjustment bots on the pump attach a spill cut off pipe (looks like a '?") use the lift pump to supply low pressure fuel. While pumping the lift pump turn the injector pump in the direction of rotation until fuel flows freely then turn the injector pump slowly and gradually against the direction of rotation till fuel stops. lock the pump in this position. this is correct timing

There's no emergence switch, if there was it would only be for fuel and not spark, there four thing to get spark,
ignition control module, ignition coil, distributor pick up assembly and spark plug wire's check for spark at coil, more then likely it's going to be your distributor pick up assembly, the pick up sit in side your ignition distributor, replace it and it will start, hope this was very helpful.

The horn contacts inside the steering wheel hub are the problem. Came across one instance where they were held in place with some foam material but as time passed the material self destructed and so did the correct positioning of the contacts.

1st thing to check is the fuel pressure , most carbs have to have a constant 12 psi supply in order to work , they'll idle on lower but will starve out when more throttle is added (pumps and filters)

second thing what model carb did u use ? reason I ask is some models require two fuel inlet connections , the former carb might have only had one that would lead u to believe new one only needs one as well , this may not be true

last but not least : out of the box carbs are set to basic settings as far as jetting goes , some fine tuning is expected to do by installer for perfect calibration of A/F ratio in all throttle settings

Bad coolant temp sensor. This part asks as choke on FI engines. Some older FI engines also have a cold start injector. Check to see if yours does.

sounds like it is running out of gas

Check the backside Of your tire. I drive an 89' f-150, and had a very similar noise. Turns out I had a rock jammed in my rotor and it was hitting the caliper every time the wheel made a rotation. I ultimately had to use a crowbar to pry the rock out. The other thing you could, and should, check is your brakes on that side. Check break pads, rotor condition, and confirm that your caliper is not worn out. I would also suggest checking your lockout hub. It could very well be that your lockout is worn out, and catching just a little bit, even though it is supposedly unlocked and disengaged. While your down there, check the joints of your front axle to check for any slop or play in them. Replace as needed.
