Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello my good people,  t would sure be appreciated if someone who
has experienced my problem could help me solve it. I recently bought
a 78 cutlass with a pretty radical 350 rocket in it. I rebuilt the carb and
replaced he starter now when I turn it over it fires and that's it'! No
continuous run. Just fires and quits. Thanks sure would appreciate
some help with this one.

Have you put a new fuel pump on it?

Check the power to the ignition coil when the key is returned to the run position, this kinda sounds electrical too me.

Check the timing but it may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel pressure if you can and replace the fuel filter. That you rebuilt the carb and it now will not run should be a clue! Maybe a stuck needle or float.
