Holden Straight 6 Blue Motor Not Starting

hi all i recently bought a VC Commodore 12month 1980 Manafacturers Date ill try to keep the story short i was in the City ( Sydney ) driving round and was coming back via lane cove when i lost 1st , 3rd and 4th gear i was stuck with 2nd and reverse i found out that was because one of the rods on the gearbox came off i got home driving the car all the way in 2nd gear i parked it put it in reverse and turned the car off next morning i ripped the starter motor out cause the key jammed on START put the new one in but i tested it first and it worked as soon as i put it in the car it wouldnt work everytime i connected the postive from the battery onto it i would loose all power through out the car so ive left the starter motor out i had to take the manifold and extractors off and put them back on whenever i try to clutch start the car it Shutters back and forth and backfires and blows black smoke ive put new spark plugs , high tension leads , dizzy cap and distribitour ( reset timing aswell ) no matter what i have checked it keeps doin it i also cleaned up the earth wires to the block and radiator anyone got an idea Thanx
