Watch some youtube videos.Ok, I have fuel at the filter and carb! But, still will not start…I guess it’s time to check spark? What’s the easiest way to do that? I have read a few threads on it but this is uncharted territory for me.
Hello fellow mudh8ers! I have tried to research and read every thread that I can find on the forum. But I just can’t seem to find exactly what’s going on with my 60.
About 5 months ago, I noticed between 2&3 gear my 60 would start to hesitate when accelerating. However, it wouldn’t start doing this until about 15-20min worth of driving. Sure enough, the other day when I came back out of the store, the engine would turn over but wouldn’t start. I tried starter fluid and nothing. No fuel in the carb…so I got it towed home. I started researching and decided it sounds like the fuel pump was the main cause. So, I ordered a new one and put it in with no problems. Also put in a new fuel filter. Now whenever I’m pumping on the gas to get fuel nothing is happening. No fuel in the filter at all. I followed the specific instructions on how to install the fuel pump. But I am at a loss. I have blown a little bit of air through the lines to see if they’re clogged. There is plenty of fuel in the tank. I guess the thing that’s throwing me off is with starter fluid if it was the pump the engine should have started and died right. Any help and/or advice would be much appreciated yours truly - I got no ride!
I just had the same issues. NO fuel at carb...fixed with new fuel pump. Still no start but it would turn over. Checked fuses, all good. Ended up that I had a bad ground connection at the fender just behind the battery. Cleaned an tightened and it fired right up.Check the fusible link.
This is important, especially since you say you have no spark. Do check your grounds…and your fuses…and your fuseable link.I just had the same issues. NO fuel at carb...fixed with new fuel pump.

So what do your fusible links look like? You may need to pull the tape of the back side of that connector and inspect the wiring that is crimped to the metal connectors that go in that green plastic plug.
The only connections that look like your pic that I can find look like they are for the windshield wiper motor. (Pic attached.).That plug is NOT the fusible link. It is the connector on the harness side of the fusible links. The fusible links are wires that run between two connectors about 3 inches apart. These "wires" are designed to burn away in the event of an overload. You should inspect the fusible links. My trucks fusible links burned up by the previous owner aka "PO". And he just ran wires from the connector you are showing to the battery. Not good. Here is a pic of fusible links:
