Hello from GA

Hey all, I have been on FRF for years now but I wanted to expand to RF and ask some questions!
Some quick background, I have a 2001 4x4 4.0 extended cab as my daily and an 85 2.3 2wd lwb that is my project that I've been trying to get running for over a year now.

After all this time its come down to setting the timing to TDC (it is on the compression stroke),I am getting spark and fuel, but it still only turns over. When I give it gas while it turns over it sounds like its running sometimes but as soon as I let off the key it dies immediately.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
