So in May my Dad helped pull-start the car. It took some doing but now it runs fine. My best guess is some crap was stuck in the carb. A carb rebuild is in this car's future (as is a real fuel filter). I took the car for a spin, got gas, and then just as I was pulling the car in the garage the clutch pedal went soft and the car stalled out. I tried to start it but the clutch would not disengage. Yikes. The clutch itself was totally rebuilt around 1985 but has very few miles on it. I figured the linkage was a likely suspect.
