351c odd problem. Engine only starts when key goes back from "start" to "run"
Hello everyone, my 72 torino is having a very odd problem. It seems i remember learning that this was a tell-tale symptom of some specific issue with an engine when i was in school for automotive, but alas i forgot!
My torino's 351c wont start while cranking. When i let it crank for a long time (5-15) seconds there are a few burps of it wanting to start but when i release the key so it goes into the run position, then it starts to run. The engine has <100k miles and when running, is pretty strong. Im thinking it's either carb (choke?) related or very likely electrical. It has a new battery as well.
