Re: Misc. How to questions - trouble shoot engine start

I have a 70 1600 type one engine installed in a Brazilian PUMA. The engine died - just shut off and I can not restart.
The engine begins to start then dies. Will not continue start to idle
Per local recommendations I have changed the following all with no help.
1 New Dist, Points, Rotor, and wires.
2 New Coil
3 New Fuel Pump.
4 Drained Carburetor Sump - Clear gas.
Any other ideas?

For the Willys, I would suggest a chevy s-10 or blazer chassis. They are short, but check the wheelbase. There is a guy in Connecticut that has that exact same set up
