my 1980 Chevrolet c10 six will cranks and will not start, but it does start when starting fluid is injected, then stops.
You have a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel pump and fuel filter for starters. Your carb may need a rebuild if the needle is stuck.
Try tapping on the carburetor where the fuel line screws into the carburetor. Use the handle end of a large screwdriver. If it then fires up (may take a little bit of cranking to get the float bowl filled up) the float inside the carburetor is sticking. HTH. -Jim
