Question

Replaced the fuel pump with a 3-6psi, no better. soaked the carb for 2 days to get it clean, wired all the holes, put it back on... same thing, but it starts faster sputters a little longer. Throttle kills it, idel mixture screw at sweet spot, longest idle. Adjusted dis. ended back where it was.

Any ideas???
Thanks

Mine was doing the same thing when I had the plug wires installed wrong. I reinstalled them correctly (153642, IIRC) starting at #1 with the crankshaft properly positioned, and it started right up.

Remember, plug wires on these go counter clockwise...

Verified TDC, all wires in order (counter clockwise).
Was wondering, when I bought the truck the muffler was ruptured the seller knew nada, what kind of motor damage can it cause. Removed valve cover, everything moves... thinking it needs a compression check.
???????

Checking compression is a good idea...does it crank evenly? If there is a cylinder that is really off the others, you can usually hear that when it cranks...instead of all of them sounding the same, when the cranking gets to the low compression cylinder, the cranking will speed up for a second...the sound will change on that one every rotation...

The muffler being ruptured wouldnt in itself hurt the motor, depends how it got that way......it is possible to do that by turning the on/off switch off while the truck is running....wait a few seconds (with no ignition to burn fuel) then turn it back on...especially if you are driving at speed...I saw it done...not pretty...

That ruptured muffler could be attributed to a back fire.

Or in my case, CAUSED by backfire. I was known to have done that when I was in the army (especially in tunnels). But I digress; sorry

Caused by, attributed to-- pretty much the same.

I didn't peg you for a miscreant, Don...
