Start with using periods at the end of your sentences. It's easier for us to follow your post when it's not one big paragraph. Proper abbreviation is your friend.

Use the search feature on this forum and you'll find tons of info on your "no start" and "surging idle".

See if your starter is getting too hot from the headers/ exhaust manifold.

Also, check the timing. If it's too advanced, it will be a hard start too.
