Re: 66 galaxie acting weird
Two things I would test: First, with the engine off and air cleaner off, look down the carb and work the throttle. You should see two streams of gas from the accelerator pump squirting. If not there are fuel problems (fuel pump or filter, float setting, debris in the carb., etc.). Second, check your timing with a timing light. Maybe the distributor clamp is loose and the distributor got bumped, changing the timing enough that it's hard to start but runs okay afterward.
