Plugs, wires, coils, timing, ECM, etc. Work it back from the plugs and see what you find. If you find nothing then move to fuel delivery side.

Thank you for your response. i now have spark and it runs on starting fluid but wont run otherwise. I replaced all of the fuel, the fuel pump works as that is what i used to get the old fuel out, but still doesnt run.


If it runs with starter fluid, you probably have a clogged filter or a line blockage coming to the carb/fuel injectors causing low pressure or flow.
