Two cylinders w/o fuel
My 68 Falcon (200 ci engine) worked fine one day. The next morning it started once and then would not fire. Checked ignition circuit, fuel pump, carb and all are fine. Changed plugs. After churning starter until the battery was dead, by chance removed plugs and found four with lots of gas as expected and two completely dry. Those two were closest to fire wall. Why? Stuck valves?

My fleet is running thin. Truck down with bad rear end. Any ideas would be appreciated.

From what you've described, I think you're looking at it backwards. Sounds like you may have flooded it from whatever malfunction and only 2 cylinders didn't get wet. Plugs should never appear wet except when the ignition isn't working (for quite a while) or the carb flooding (maybe a piece of dirt got in the float needle for an instant causing to stick). You might approach it from that angle.
