Thanks again for the information folks supplied last week on what to do first to get my 57 going. Spent today, draining the oil, changing the filter, cleaning out the oil air breather, dropped the gas tank and flushed it out, cleaned out the fuel line and added a see-thru, in-line fuel filter (for good measure), put new spark plugs in, added a new battery. Last week I pulled the old spark plugs and added a small squirt of diesel/oil mixture. I cranked the motor a few times with the spark plugs out today to give the oil and gas a chance to circulate a bit before trying to fire up the motor. I replaced the spark plugs, sprayed a bit of starter fluid into the carberator and tried to start the car with no luck. It turned over but would not catch. I checked the fuel filter and it was about half full of gas. The carberator looks like new so I did not do a kit to clean it up. Any ideas on what to do next? Oh, and the brakes seemed fine, oddly enough. Though I'll tread carefully when I do get the car going to make sure. I have a long looping drive way that will work for my first test drive. Thanks again for all your help. Look forward to posting new photos when I have it all up and going.
