Has driven fine for two years (fuel pump was replaced). Ran fine yesterday on a 3 hr drive but today won't start. Turns over but won't catch. Have spark at plugs. Cap and rotor are dry and not cracked. Fuel pump is priming and plugs have wet fuel on them. Sprayed starter fluid in carb and nothing. After I turn it over and stop, engine cycles a bit and blows fuel vapor out the carb. Thought maybe water in fuel but starter fluid should have stared it wouldn't it?

Though my fuel pump IS priming, could it be bad? Any other thoughts as to why it's not starting?

Check the fuel pressure whether it's within specs.
