Any help would be helpfull in trying to solve a very big problem, I have a 1979 Cutlas Solon Brawham it has a 260 it was running fine, one day it just stopped running, it would run for a little bit, flood out and die, bought new carb, I had this friend look at it, he was looking at the timing, changed the plugs around, now it don't start, according to the Hanes book, to fix the timing, and the plugs, the top of the carb was shooting the gas out, it dont stay running long enough to adjust anything, it is like it dont get enough gas. :(

smalltown71 - It sounds like the engine is being flooded out. Your new carb should have been pre-adjusted or come with an adjustments page to set it up for your cars engine. Start there then make sure all your spark plugs are clean and work. Check and set the ignition timing after all the other items are completed.
