So you know, "satan" is the devil. "Satin" is a tightly woven cotton cloth finished to a high sheen.

Anyway, start by checking your starting methodology against Doug Dubach's:

If that's not working, check the flywheel alignment by seeing if the TDC mark is actually at TDC (use a probe in the spark plug hole). Then check the cam timing, then install a fresh spark plug (the 426 fouls them easily).

If none of that gets you anywhere, go back to the carb, make sure that all the jets are 100% clear, that there's an O-ring on the fuel mixture screw, and that the screw is set to about 1 3/4 turns out as a starting point.
