  1. I was out cruising around in my '58 Super and everything was just fine. Got home, backed it into the garage and closed shop. The next day I needed to move it and when I tried to start it it fired up then began to idle rough and finally died. Next try nothing. Just turned over and over. Next day I tried it again and same result, except it would not run at all, just tried for a few seconds and died once. Then nothing. Sprayed starting fluid into the carb and tried again, but no response when I tried to start it again. Checked spark at coil output, fair. Checked for spark at plugs, one short spark upon turning over, then nothing. So, replaced Coil, points and condenser. Good spark to distributor, and good spark to plugs. But she still won't start. Just turns over and acts like there is no spark to the plugs, but there is. Tried starting fluid again, still nothing. Anyone out there have any suggestions? I can't figure out what to test/check/replace next. Help!
  2. I stored my car last winter and when the weather got a little nicer this spring I started it up and pulled out into the driveway to let it idle and charge the battery. It ran for about 20 minutes, then sputtered and stalled. I figured that I was running low on gas and added 2 gal.. I have not been able to start it since then. I can hear the fuel pump come on when I turn the key and I hear it shut off when it reaches pressure. I have taken off the rubber hose connecting the air filter to the throttle body and depressed the throttle to open the passage and sprayed starting fluid into the throttle body and then cranked it over to no avail. Not even a sputter. It seems that there is no spark. I have replaced the ignition control module and the coil pack but still not even a sputter. I'm lost on what to try next. Any advise? I love my little 1988 Blue Reatta with 120k, but how do I get it back on the road again? 1988 blues
