Re: 68 camaro wont start
The good news is these cars are pretty simple, no computers to muck with just need spark and fuel. Almost sounds like a fuel delivery problem but you said you have fuel in the carb so I would start by checking for spark. It could be several things including a bad coil wire or coil, weak battery, bad grounds, bad starter.... etc. Start with the simple stuff. Take a volt meter to your battery, is it at least 11.5 volts ? Check the ground cables and straps - battery to engine, engine to chassis. Are they tight and do they look good ? Replace them if at all questionable. These cars require solid grounds to start. Check the battery cable and ignition lead on the starter - are they tight and in good shape ? If these check out then pull the coil lead to the distributor and see if you get spark. If you don't have spark then its wire or coil. If you do have spark then check at the spark plug end. If you have spark to the plugs then it has to be fuel delivery. ie: bad gas, clogged fuel filter, crap in the carb.
