I have thought about squirting something down it's throat to see if it's a 
fuel issue.

 Ignition timing is spot on, as I even pulled the valve covers to verify 
their position in relation to the dizzy rotor. Wire leads are in their correct 
position too, as I made sure of that before I got too far along.

 I'm sure if this engine had seen some run time, it would have accepted the 
FI much easier (plus I'm new to the FI on these cars, as I'm a carb guy :O ) , 
and probably been running by now, but it was rebuilt over 2 years ago, then it 
sat with nothing happening to it until I put it in my 71 Square. It took me a 
while to slowly gather up all the bits and pieces that I needed to put the FI 
system together. Thanks for all the help.
