Re: [Chrysler300] Fire in the Carb

Alone you can retard the dist a little and start it. Better? Try more, or less.
 Loosen the dist.  a little and have someone start it and you slowly turn it toward retard until it smooths out.

You haven't said what was done from when it drove in and now. There may be another problem, think about it and what could have created this Mal-funtion.
This is probably a 2 glass' of wine solution, or maybe the cause...

Ray's answer of YES doesn't tell me if I should retard or advance the current setting.  Want to avoid that flame thing when trying to get it running.  Crossed wires does not apply in this case because no wiring changes have been made since it was driven into the garage weeks ago.  Do I advance or retard distributor?

Yes, or miswired plug wires.

Angad's 300 K..  When starting, it backfires through the carb and flames shoot out.  Does this indicate that timing is too advanced, or too retarded?
