    Does anyone know why my trusty Volvo does not run.

    I have a 87 740 GLE w/220000 miles. It ran fine until the aux shaft seal
    dumped oil. I pulled stuff from the front of the engine and replaced aux
    shaft oil seal. I have been in this area about six month before replacing
    the crank oil seal and timing belt. Tried to start engine before putting
    parts back in place. It started but stalled and would not restart. Tried
    starting fluid (ether) at the mass air intake still no start. Strong odor
    of gasoline, I'm thinking no spark. Check timing, OK, spark a little
    orange, jumped spark from #1 plug wire to exhaust manifold. Plugs regapped.
    Again starts but dies. Reassembled the engine parts (PS, AC,ALT, and STUFF)
    and stared engine, it ran long enough to set timing @ 12 degrees BFTDC. Now
    it started when cold but within 3 minutes it stops. Still has a strong
    smell of gasoline. Does anyone have any knowledge as to why my good ole'
    740 is giving me the treatment? Thanks.
