The engine cranks just fine,no starter problem battery is good. and has all fluids, gas, oil, and tranny but will not start running, like its not getting fuel. is this the fuel pump acting up or could the filter just be really clogged?

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. At the starter motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through neutral or clutch switch depending on the tranny.
The starter motor grounds through the engine block.
Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Use a test light to check for voltage.
There are various testing procedures that you can use that bypasses some systems, just to see if starter motor will crank the engine. If you try that, make sure tranny is out of gear and functional parking brake is set.
Are the battery connections good? If the starter motor won't crank, have to check voltage and ground circuits for starter motor. Usually two voltage circuits at starter motor, depending on year--make-- model? One comes from battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the crank position and is wired through the clutch or neutral switch depending on the tranny. You may have a starter relay? The starter usually grounds through the engine block, so positive and negative/ground battery cables are important. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
What is year--make--model?
When taking battery cables loose, I try to use memory saver. Hoping there won't be any problems on start-up? Are you saying the starter motor cranks good, but, won't start? If so, have helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs--check proper fuel pressure--check fuel injector pulse. If the starter motor won't even crank, then have to check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Any starter testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.
Does the battery have 12+ volts? Can you check the starter wire for system voltage while someone tries to crank? (With no help, extend wires so you can see your multimeter from the drivers seat) If those things check out fine, it's time to suspect the starter. If the battery is dead, it's "possible" the alternator has gone out. If you get it charged up good and started. You can watch battery voltage for a bit and make sure it's showing higher than it was when you got it to start. This indicates the alternator is charging. I would start there and see what your results are.
no model Honda stated, nor year, 1973?
my guess is
car fails to crank, am i right,?
ask how to trouble shoot NO CRANK (easy)
if engine CRANKS, ask who to trouble shoot that (longest book on earth)
ever clean the battery lugs this decade?
no crank, does car have A/T o r M/T tranny, not stated.
did jumper starts or known good battery (fully charged) crank motor fast (y/n)
yes, bad battery
no, bad cranking system. (its a system not 1 part)
i hot wire the starter, soleniod.
motor cranks but dont start (cuz keys are in my pocket for safety)
no crank is bad starter or bad battery cables
cranks fast. starter and crank shaft on engine spins normal
cause,bad key line.
post results. we can work a bad key line, after post tranny type.
the above cuts the problem in1/2.
1: bad cranking system.
2: bad key line.
if battery is just discharged, its a bad battery or bad charging system.
owning a charger solve this as is using a voltmeter on battery after a good start.
Does the new starter crank over the engine? If it does, then go through the steps to get it running, check the oil, check the gas, can you hear the fuel pump come on? Check the spark. Go through the list till you hit something. If it doesn't crank, it could be the starter, but let's assume it is good. How about the battery? Check it? Voltage above 13 volts? How about the electrolyte fluid? Check it, How about the water in the battery? Full? Check the contacts, battery terminals , they have to be squeaky clean and tight. Check it. Will it crank if you jump it? Get the battery down to walmart, they will teat it for you. Hope this helps.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. I don't think your security system is the problem? At the starter motor two voltage circuits, one is fuse protected and is hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and relay is energized. Any testing at relay or starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
ok.. oil simply change it and the filter don't forget to add oil to rubber ring.. water jus unhook the hose at the bottom of the radiator using pliers and make sure you have a drain pan.. you can run water through it if it is unclean, otherwise you shouldn't need to flush, then reattach hose and clamp.. fill to top.. the water pump on the vehicle will need to be rotated or cranked to get water into the engine, and refill... be careful not to crank the water pump by hand because that will mess up the timing and you will need to redo that.. tranny fluid should not be changed because if there is a certain amount of metal shavings already in it clean fluid will ruin it, but i suggest checking the fluid level and maybe topping it off if needed there should be a bolt on the side of the transmission that you can take out and put your finger in the hole and the fluid should reach the hole and no lower if it pours out its fine let it level out too much tranny fluid is just as bad as not enough.. you will need to have the car on jack stands as level as possible to do this... also you can disconnect the fuel lines at the carburetor and connect a hose to it turn the key on and the fuel pump should pump out the old gasoline..
