    The engine isn't getting any gas. The car starts when I pour fuel directly into the carbeurator but it dies immediately when that gas diminishes. It's been sitting in the drive way for a while and I think the fuel in the tank may have gone bad, but I'm not sure. It may be the fuel line.

How do you remove the battery from a 1985 chevy caprice class


Once you have the battery cables off you will see a bolt at the base of the battery on the firewall side. Loosen this bolt and the plastic block will slide out away from the battery. This is the clamp that holds it in place. You may have to remove it altogether to get the battery out easily. Be sure to put it back on before you complete the job or the battery will bounce around as you drive and could easily short out on the hood or fender. hope this helps.
