Is your ignition timing close to correct. If not the car will not start. Pull valve cover and rotate until #1 is at top dead center (TDC) ignition stroke. Then pull distibutor cap and check to see if center of rotor is at #1, usually a groove cut in the distributor housing itself. If all is well then you may need to pour a LITTLE gas down the carb to get things going. Peter
