Good Morning All. I a 69 1600 that i have been working on for about 3-4 months, new starter, header/exhaust gasket
and new electronic ignition distributor. i have the timing set relatively close as it fires with starter fluid. i have fuel in
the bowls and have taken the domes off and cleaned everything with gasoline. the needle looks straight and the nozzle looks
good to. put em back together and oiled the carbs. the piston has a bit of resistance when i lift it and falls back as it should
but still no fire... any suggestions

Try using the choke lever or putting you hand over the carb mouth as a choke. If the jet is not set right, it won't start.
