I put it into a gear and accelerate and it dies. I also hear a loud hissing noise coming
from behind headlight.  I replaced 3 of the 6 plugs and wires. Trying to get the back 3. So

Sounds like you have a vac leak in there. Search out that hissing noise.

Btw. You should be able to roll that engine forward to get to that back end. Google it. Not that hard to do.
