Hi, the cylinders are dry of petrol fumes and you need a (good battery), if all the mehanical parts (working fuel pump and clean fuel filter) o.k. and the spark plugs are clean and the (spark plug timming leads) are correct and points are set and the (ignition coil) is o.k. this engine should start. (if not) take off the air filter and check it is clean, leve the air filter off and put a very small amount (egg cup full) of clean petrol into port the carberreter (it will not start straight away because the plugs may be wet) or wrong (timming leads) if it splutters problebly not enough petrol or ignition faults (electrical points contacts dirty) all cars need metered fuel and air to run. wish you luck gerry

I replaced the ditributer on my 1980 cadillac deville and now it wont start


Was the engine running before you replaced the distributor ?
If yes, the distributor gear could be off a few teeth which would make the timing off.
Are you getting spark to the plugs ?

Have you looked on the valve covers? There might not be an actual OIL CAP but just a cap & tube that goes directly into the valve covers.
