68 mustang no start

I bought a 68 mustang it had no engine, I put in a 90 351w, replaced the coil,distributor,plugs and wires, and voltage regulator, the problem is that the car turns over and almost starts but won't. I've checked the timing over and over again and that's all good, and it is getting spark and fuel, if someone can help me please do. Thanks.

What type of carb are you running? Have you adjusted the air/fuel mixture? Checked for vaccum leaks around the carb?

It's an Edelbrock 650 vac secondary electric choke, I did an adjustment on the air/fuel mixture, and as far as I can tell theres no vacuum leaks, but it's hard to tell when it's not running. And the carb isn't new and it was used on a 302 not long ago

Ok I'm guessing you tried starter fluid? Do you have all ports not in use plugged. Do you have an auto tranny? If so is the vac secondaries hooked to the distributor? Do you have points or electronic ign?

Didn't try starter fluid, all ports are plugged, yes an auto trans it the original one for the car, vac secondary are plugged in and it points, the distributor is a rebuilt one from the parts store,
