Well good and bad news.
Sfter I read your mail I went out and pulled the carberator and opened it up. IT was pretty clean for it had been apart before and the jet screwdriver slots were not in good shape. I did get them out and blow them out with air. Put it back together and reinstalled. As soon as gas was pumped up and filled the bowl, it started. I had both jets set at 1-1/2 turn out. While I was letting it warm up for final adjustment, I noticed water dripping. Upon further inspection I found there is a crack in the side of the top radiator resevoir. Goody Goody goody. Guess I better fix this first so will let you know how it all works out

SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A TILLOTSON CARB--make sure the choke is closed --
don't step on the gas pedal as it will stop the choke from working --
if that fails--make the system richer--and if that fails send it to me
and i'll check it out for you. CHUCK-K--p/s CHECK the intake manifold
