Close to hone and parked in a safe spot but the ‘71 won’t fire.
I took her out about half an hour ago and did a nice drive on a scenic road out here and she ran great. Started on a button and smoothing happy car. I put 7 gallons of fresh gas in here and then nothing. She cranks and I can hear the fuel pump. I actually had a spark tester with me and she is getting spark at the plugs.
I don’t have a way of checking for fuel flow at this point. Wondering if the fresh fuel maybe stirred some crud up that is blocking flow maybe?
I did also clean the windows but pretty sure that isn’t it - ha.
Any ideas gentlemen?
UPDATE - I got it started after leaving it sit for about 20 minutes and flooring the gas pedal while cranking it. It stumbled and then finally caught and is back to running well.
