Replaced spark plugs now car won't start

Asked by SteveMerkle Oct 20, 2018 at 05:09 PM about the Ford Galaxie

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the spark plugs and now my car won't start. I checked and I do
have a spark. My battery is charged. I have fuel. I checked my fuse box, and I
did not blow a fuse. The spark plug gap is correct. I put them in one at a time
I know the order of the spark plugs is correct. What could be the issue?
I also replaced the carburetor but I have replaced other carburetors in the
past I'm sure it is connected correctly.

Check the point gap under the distributor cap.

Recheck the carb, do you see a little squirt of fuel when you open the throttle? If not then there’s is no fuel either getting to the carb or an internal problem with the carb.
