Ok thanks. Tha fixed the problem by changing the flex plate
I have another question ford the same vehicle
(1981 El Camino 305)
When engine is cold it will crank fast and not start. Sometimes if your lucky it will spitter and spudder a bit which then canusualy keep it running.
But most of the time when it's cold it will not start. I've tried pumping the gas pedal a few times before turning the key with the choke on or off doesn't seem take make a difference. Choke is manual. I have open chrome breather on it and it's winter about -25C outside.
Is the timing too adavanced? As it cranks really fast but won't start usually results in a dead battery after trying to start it. Has new starter just put in today. Old one was weak what could the no start in cold weather be.
