Car was running fine 10 months ago. It was not used at all until now and will not not run. It is getting fuel in carburator and fire at each plug wire at plugs. Please help. Willgood

If the vehicle hasnt run in the last 10 months Id say the fuel is the problem , It doesnt take but a few months for fuel to go skunky .

Thanks Lear. Gas gauge was on empty so I put in 2 gallons of fresh gas and also run some through carburator and still does the same. thanks. Willgood

Gas sitting that long becomes so stale, it might not even fire.

Drain out the tank and blow out the lines. Put in new fuel and see what happens.

Also make sure you have consistent, fat, blue spark all the time.
