Sugestions; Try adding a bottle of ' Carburetor / Fuel Injector Cleaner ' to gas! This worked for me....... ! Or, things to check : Start with the simple ones; 1. inline fuel filter 2. alternator / battery 3. fuel pump 4. timing and distributor 5. wires and plugs 6. compression test valve cover gaskets Hope this helps ya ? Let me know,ok?
