No Maddog I did not use starter fluid. I will try with starter fluid to see if I get it to start.
The fuel pump is running, I am getting gas up to the fuel distributor.
I will do the tests both you and Steve mentioned and will post the results.
Thanks guys, appreciate all the help and bear with me I am new to all this.
