Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have put in a new Engine using my old distributor from my old engine and my old flywheel. The car is
backfiring when cranking but it is not starting, it just cranks and the distributor shows that its supplying
power to the plugs.

Doesn't sound like you set /lined up the distributor correctly, and your timing if off.
