HEY FOLKS,
I WAS HOPING YOU COULD HELP. PICKED UP AN OLD 1989 CHEVY 1500 PICKUP. WENT TO THE CAR WASH TO CLEAN ENGINE BAY BEFORE I WORKED ON IT. SILLY ME! NOW IT WON'T START. I PULLED OFF DITRIBUTOR COVER, APPEARS TO BE DRY. THE VECHICLE IS GETTING POWER TO GAUGES, BUT WON'T TURN OVER NOTHING. I HAVE LET IT DRY OUT FOR A DAY AND STILL NOTHING.
I WAS WISHING THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME THOUGHTS AS TO WERE TO LOOK/CHECK FIRST.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Welcome to the forum. I'd make sure the battery has a full charge and the connections are good, not only at the battery, but the other ends, also. Your saying the starter won't crank? There should be a purple wire at the starter solenoid, it should be hot with key in the crank position. It may just be blown fuse somewhere, I'd have to check the circuits to and from the ignition switch and clutch switch, where applicable.
