1961 Other Cadillac Models V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 48000 miles
I have a 1961 cadilac series 62 with a 390 v8 in it ive replaced everything under the dis. including the dis. cap and coil. I have spark coming from the coil and from the points and the carb. is pumping gas to the motor but no matter what i try i cant get it to start. the engine has not been rebuilt yet and it ran about 6 months ago before i bought it.
you have to have copression, spark and fuel and timing in order for the car to run. if you get spark to the plugs then that will eliminate a few things. Check the compression and wether or not the fuel is going into theengine. You have to check fuel pressure as well as flow on this car. Also how old is the gas? as gas now adays usully is only good for a year or so. then check your timing. if you dont get spark to your plugs check your rotor if it is coming from the coil, it may be cracked. and you could have junk in your fuel.......
