Heres a challenge
 
My 81 el camino dies the other day after it ran for the first time in 6 months. It had good spark so i figured the old gas gunked up the carb so i rebuilt it. I disconnect the gas line from the carb and spray starter fluid into it and it doesnt even kick over. I take a plug out and i see good spark. What could the problem be? If its timing how could of it have changed it was just running crappy but it was running. please help

Spray the starting fluid/Ether in to the choke horn.......

...and tap around the carburator with a screw driver, just lightly.

If that don't work...BOOST it! :D :p

Probably a little late now, but anyway....

Pull all those plugs and let 'em dry out. (Might as well give those plugs a cleanin' while they're out!)

if you let your car sit for six months it could be water in the gas. this is especially true if the tank was half full or less; condensation forms on the inside of the tank if it is not completely full of gas. just a thought since you said it started and then died...
