Re: [Imperial-Club] 1965 Crown different issue
- That definitely sounds fuel related. If it was ignition, it would not start when you put gas down the throat of the carburetor. You should check everything to do with fuel delivery from the fuel filter back to the gas in the tank.

My electrical problem turned out to be a bad connection between the wire that runs from the starter that is connected to the battery cable. When I corrected this problem I was able to start the car but shortly after that I am where I am at now. I tried to put a little gas in the carb and start from there but it would start but only run for so long then die out.
