Just got a 1952 Ford pickup in from Canada and I'm trying to get it to fire. It sat for a long time but the guy selling said he drove it around his yard last week. I replaced all fluids and spark plugs. The engine is currently on a 6v original everything. I got the engine to turn over with the starter just fine. I pulled the plugs and made sure they are receiving a spark which they are. As far as fuel I replaced the fuel pump but I have not checked inside of the tank yet. I was trying to get it to fire with starter fluid and pouring a little gas into the carb. I got nothing......I couldn't get it to fire. I was told the carb was rebuilt and it looks newer but I'm trying to think what I'm missing. I have spark, compression and I thought fuel from gas in carb and starter fluid but I'm guessing not. I just installed a new fuel pump completely empty into my gasoline container and I couldn't get it to suck up fuel to fill the glass bowl which is why I went with starter fluid and gas into the carb. It was getting late and I just waNted it to fire. Any ideas?
