|bigwildgrin||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...|

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!)

...and tap around the carburator with a screw driver, just lightly.
If that don't work...BOOST it! :p

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
