Hey CRG members thanks for the responses. Finally had a chance to look at the forums. I'm not a big fan of having to use ether to get the car started either!!!!!!! I had a friend with me while I was doing this. We checked the carb "before" I put anything into it to make sure the pump and choke were working properly. They "appeared" to be. I held the butterfly open and pushed back on the linkage and gas pumped into the carb. we let it set for about 5 minutes, then I went and pumped the gas pedal twice, like I always do and turned the key. It would not fire up, that is when we put a spray of ether in the carb, then turned the key and the engine fired up. I'm thinking the moisture is playing havoc with everything involved. But,,,,,,,,,,,, I could have a pump going out or the choke is not working properly or a combination of all of the above. Just have to wait and see what happens next month!!!!!!!!!!! I will put an additive into the gas (full tank) to help with the moisture problem like Phillip suggests. I should have thought about that when I stored the car.
