Help please.

1966 coupe 289
MSD6al
mallory dizzy
patronix coil
Edelbrock 1406

I do have spark checked with timing light

New starter (mini hight torque -DB electic)
New Battery
New Solenoid

When I crank the engine without pressing the gas pedal down it does nothing

When I crank the engine with pressing the gas pedal all the way down it sputters and tries to catch but doesn't

I'm lost someone please help. Many thanks in advance

Thanks Black65 for the reply

I did spray some starter fluid in the carb, wouldn't that get it running for a second?

It sounds like you're describing some kind of fuel starvation situation. You need to determine
A. That you have fuel in the tank
B. How far is the fuel making it 'down the line'

If you've got good fuel flow all the way to the intake, then you need to take abetted look at timing and ignition.

How can I check if I have a weak spark?
