I have a 1984 cutlass Supreme brougham 3.8 34,000 miles i did plugs wires cap rotor coil, and fuel line to carb. 2 barrel BTW. It will turn over start for 1 or 2 seconds and stall. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

can you tell me if it ran normally before you installed all those parts? Or are you putting parts on trying to make it run?

You're going to need to know if it's a fuel problem of an electrical problem. With the air cleaner off can you keep the engine running with an external fuel source? If you can keep the engine with an external fuel source then you know it's a fuel problem. If it won't run with the external fuel added then we need to look at the ignition part.

Do you have any equipment to check the distributor for power and signal to the coil?
