I have a ford 302 new cam lifters push rods and heads. just put engine in car runs very rough all together. all plugs have good spark and equal compresion in all cylinders.started motor and pulled plug wires off one at a time cyliners 3 an 5 didn't effect motor. could this be bad intake manifold gasket or carb gaskets it's all i think it could be. any ideas?

it sounds like you have the wrong firing order for the cam you installed. there are 2 different firing orders for small block fords. one is 15426378 and the other is 13726548. change whatever firing order you're using to the other one and your problem will probably disappear.
