First check the battery. Sometimes a car may have trouble starting if the battery is weak though not completely dead.

Second check the spark plugs and cables. If they're old the plugs may be corroded and not generating a good spark. If the ignition cables are old the insulation may have broken down allowing voltage leak. Again, this keeps a strong spark from firing in the combustion chamber and the engine won't start.

Third, check the coil. A bad coil won't deliver the voltage needed for firing.

Beyond this, I don't know... maybe a fuel delivery problem though. Check to see if you have fuel in the carburetor bowl and/or that the carb isn't flooding.


Is the ignition getting power ie. does engine turn over. If not I would check for a blown fuse or fusable link.
