I once put on a distributor on 180 degrees off. wouldn't start and would blow out out the carb after trying to turn it over. Check that distributor.

All very good inputs. The carb has just been rebuilt so is there still a chance of a bad power valve? I'll check into each of those and let you guys know. Thanks.
