Re: My 1956 Chevy Truck won't start

this may seem like a goofy idea, but how old is the fuel? old gas can screw you over like this. maybe worth a look. take the fuel line off at the carb and put it into a gas can or some other safe method of collection, a semi clear jug will allow you to see the color. crank the engine and get some fuel in the can. take a sniff of the fuel and see how it smells, if it doesn't smell like it should then dump the tank and get some fresh fuel. this old gas thing has messed up many guys. the old gas doesn't burn like the new gas does. it may also have some water in the fuel system which can mess you around.
worth a try?
