To anyone that can help:
My 86 has been sitting for very long probally all year thats my 1st mistake anyway i had head lights and interior so i figured the car might fire up. Fuel pump came on and i tried to start but not enough juice I obviosly need to charge or get a new battery but when i tried it the 2nd time (still same battery i just figured i try again for the hell of it) I got the LOUDEST short pop like an m-80 went off (scared the sh#t out of me) I saw no smoke or anything of the sort. Ooops what did i do?????? please help
Thanks, Scott

My guess is a backfire. Ought to check your intercooler hoses to see any of them are now loose. Since it has been sitting so long, you may have an injector stuck open or dribbling fuel. Or, perhaps your timing chain is damaged and the valve train is out of sync with the crank.

Really, there is no way to tell what is going on without being there.

Try it again...
