well, i went out in the garage today to strip the interior out and get it ready to paint and bedline real good. went to start it after i got everything out of it to pull it outside to spray it out and the damn thing wouldnt start. It wants to turn over but then makes a bad clunking noise and I notice the motor bouncing all around... maybe I need some gas? My gauge doesnt work so i shook the hell out of it to hear if there was any in the tank and I could hear some but still wont start...

I did clean my motor yesterday and rinsed it off with the water hose while the engine was running and left it running about 15 minutes afterwards and pulled it back in the garage then shut er down for the night. tried to start it today and nothing....? any suggestions? I would think if any sensors or anything got wet yesterday they would have been dry by today right?

Dry your distributor and any firing electronics. Auto Zone has a spray electrical dryer you can use, or just use vodka! And then use a little for yourself! LOL Gonna try to do my body lift this week you wanna help?
