69 Ranchero problems

i bought a 69 Ranchero on Friday. still in decent shape.

has 315 Cleveland with C6 box in.

problem is this: when you turn ignition, the motor swings and wants to fire up and sometimes does, but doesn't idle or doesn't even fire up!

any thoughts or suggestions what cause might be?

thanx!

Any history on the car? Sounds like a carby problem.

Re: 69 Ranchero problems

don't know exact history. bought it 2 weeks ago.

used to have 6 cylinder in, but previous owner bought it with V8 already installed. turning out to be a bit of a nightmare!
