sitting 1970 f100 wont start
I purchased a 1970 f100 recently, and it turns over well but wont start.
Previous owner said it was running within the last year or so. I have replaced
the ignition coil, distributor cap and rotor head, spark plugs and their wires. I
know for a fact the ignition coil is getting power. I cleaned the fuel pump out
and tested it and it appears to be working and getting clean fuel through (I can
see where it shoots into carburetor which I recently cleaned) and the camshaft
is turning the rotor as it should. Any clue what might be wrong/what I can do to
get it started? I tried the whole starter fluid into carburetor trick.
Your car has an ignition or fuel pump problem; really could be either. You could do a simple test. Pull a plug and see if it's wet; that's fuel and you have a spark problem. If dry, lay plug against the head and see if you have spark; if you do, it's a fuel problem.
