I've changed the coil, fuel filter, fuel pump, voltage regulator, battery, alternator, and still having this no start problem with my 1978 Thunderbird. What could be the issue?

From the tailpipe? What color is the smoke? - Jim

Distributor? How old are the plug wires? Have you checked the spark plugs? The thing could be fouling so bad that it just pours out black smoke and won't run

It is a small amount of white smoke coming from the carb. Cud it be the sending unit?

I'll try Max Cleaner today to try and clean out fuel injectors
