55 Tbird hard to start

Asked by GJTbird May 26, 2019 at 01:38 AM about the 1955 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I  have a 55 Tbird. Doesn’t like to start after
sitting overnight. If I manually prime the
carburetor or use starting fluid it will try to
fire. Usually after about third try will run. Also
dies on inclines like it has ran out of gas.

Time to rebuild the carburetor.
