My 1938 Plymouth has been sitting for way too long. 20 years. I have drained the old gas, and other fluids to get ready to crank the engine. I added a little Marvel Mystery Oil to each cylinder. I finally have gotten spark to the plugs, but it will not fire even on Starting fluid. Does anyone have any good ideas. I have new plugs, rotor and condenser. Any help would be appreciated. Greg
I stopped in to get gas tonight, and when I jumped back in to leave, the car won't start!!! My car is a 1949 Roadmaster.. The battery was fine, but yet I still attempted to jump it just in case. No start. Not even a click! Just the lonesome stranded sound of me pressing on the gas pedal. I sat and waited almost two hours for a tow, and hoped that she would start after she cooled down, but no. Could this be my starter? What do you guys think? The only change I made recently was replacing the fan belt. I had put in a new voltage regulator, but ended up putting back in my old one since the new one didn't work! I have the wires correctly placed on the regulator, and I have polarized the regulator as well.. I am at a loss. Only thing I think it may be is the starter. Keep in mind the car makes NO sound when trying to start, and the battery seems to be alright. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster
