Hello, I got a 1978 camaro as a project car last year so i could learn how to work on my own car and the technologies that were present in cars at the time. I had to get the engine and tranny rebuilt, I have installed new spark plugs, wire, distributor, fuel pump, carburetor, everything. Well I finally got it to start up last weekend and it ran well for a good time, drove it around the block no problem. The exhaust is only the headers i bought for it, makes it really loud and shaky, but that will be taken care of later. My problem is as i was sitting at a stoplight, the car died on me, i pushed it to the side with my friend (all this was the next day after i started it the first time) and found my negative battery cable was loose, so i tightened it up and started it, no problem again, yet then it seemed to run out of gas ( I only had a gallon, maybe two in before i even started it). we go get some more and then fill her up. I try to crank it over and the starter seems to scratch with the flywheel. After another minute I try to crank it again and nothing happens, no click, nothing starting up. any help or suggestions? I've seen a few things about the neutral safety switch and the starter switch but nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. Power is going to my starter if that helps.
