Was driving my 1949 Cadillac when it just stalls

now. Any ideas?

Adding to what else to look at would be the carburetor, it could be flooding out due to a piece of dirt caught up in the needle and seat, or a bad float. May be time to rebuild the carb. Just needs to be looked at to determine if it needs it or not.


Pull a spark plug to see if it is fouled or wet with gas. You can also use that plug to check for spark.
