will other times it wont. it is like it is flooded and smell like varnish with a black or grey
smoke. you have to let it set for about 1x2 hour before it will start again. when it starts
it runs good it is a v-8 with a holley carb. you also can not give it gas when you try to
start it or it will not start when you first get in it to drive it. the truck is a second form of
trranspartation and is not driven very much two to three time a month maybe. help
