My older brother had this same problem with his '73 Datsun 240Z. His
problem was always with the crappy carbs. You had to pump the pedal
about halfway down ONCE, then turn the engine over. If it didn't fire
(often the case), then you either wait 10 minutes and try again or you
push start it. If you rolled it down a good hill and popped the
clutch, it would drag and complain, but always start and run. If he
had known how to set those carbs up, I would have done a lot less
I assume you guys checked that he was getting fuel in proper amounts?
