this is what i'm leaning towards too. now that i think about it during these attempts i would allow the car to spin maybe 15 to 20 seconds and after about 10 or so sec you could see a vapor start to appear so i'm sure there was enough fuel then i would also spritz in some starting fluid and nothing.
both the coil lead and a spark plug showed yellow spark. yep that's what i'll work on is the ignition spark.
thanks much larry for your help
