Check the fuel filter and also check the fuse for the sending unit and all of the vaccum lines and the one behind the throttle body as well

Possibility fuel pump or pump relay, or if you have had lots of rust & debris in tank, could be the filter again.

Hi Cherles, I'm glad to help!

I'm not there to diagnose it properly but here's a couple thing you can try! (1) When a vehicle sits for a long period of time the gas can go bad. I would make sure the gas is not full of moisture from sitting so long. (2) OH the old years when they had points. I would take the point out and see if they are burnt if they are replace them. Start here and see if this helps. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Cherles.

1997 Gmc sierra 1500 350 vortec wont start


The distributor is out of time. Bring it back to #1 TDC and try to drop it in. If it doesn\'t go in all the way, it\'s because the oil pump drive isn\'t lining up. All you do is have someone "tap" the engine over in very short bursts. Eventually it will line itself up and drop in. Unfortunately, even if you get it started, you will probably get a check engine light. If you do, you will need access to a scanner that will display data. Look for a data line called "CMP Retard", make small adjustments to the timing and snap the throttle. Get this reading as close as possible to 0. I believe the tolerance is +/- 2 degrees. If you can\'t get it close enough, the distributor is still out a tooth. ALSO, keep in mind that the air filter must be in place. Without the inlet hoses, the mass airflow sensor cannot read properly.
Good luck!
