Re: BBC 396 no start
Did you verify your dist timing by watching the 1 intake valve closing and lining up the timing mark, then checking rotor position alignment to 1 position on cap?
Check your firing order and trace down to each plug.
I highly doubt that weak valve springs would cause an issue at idle unless the were so weak the valve hangs open,
