- Tell us about your Corvette: I have a 1971 Ontario Orange 454 LS5 that had been sitting in a barn for a bit over 20 years. I am learning and can't wait to get it on the road.
- Location: Rochester, NY
I used a starter spray and sprayed it into the carburetor, the car turned over for about 3 seconds and then stopped. I am thinking that I am getting air and spark but I am not sure I am getting gas. I am thinking that I will need to change out the fuel pump as my next step but I am also wondering if I should blow out the gas lines. I should say that when I tried cranking it without using the spray, I could smell gas.
Any suggestions would be welcomed. I am hoping to get this back on the road this summer and the engine is a pretty big hurtle at this point!
