Question about 1981 Ford F 100
I have a 1981 F100 Big Six engine that will not start. It turns over but just will not hit. When I raise the hood, I smell fuel-like it's flooded-but I did not use the accelerator in the process. My first thought is no fire (rotor button, coil, etc.) but I also lean toward the choke. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you...Steve
If your smelling alot of fuel without using the pedal at all the floats are most likely stuck open in the carb. Which will cause it to flood out. I would check for spark first the go from there.
