Engine Performance problem
1981 Chevy Citation 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 36000 miles

I previously wrote about my Chevy Citation. I replaced the ignition coil, spark plugs/wires, distributor cap/rotor, starter, and battery and car would still not start. So then I pulled the carburetor off and rebuilt the carburetor, then installed the carb. Car still would not start. I then pulled the spark plugs to realize they were soaked in gas. What could be the problem?

Do you

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark?
