I have a classic car, in great shape (except one issue)
This weekend I brought the rambler out of the garage and wash, wax and ran the engine. It ran great for about and hr just idiling. When I stopped the car and attempted to restart again. It would not kick over. I sprayed a little starting fluid in the carb. and it started. It would go for a minute or less and In neutreul if I did not apply a little gas all the time. It would stall. I would then have to repeat the above step to get it started again. I did this for about 5 tries before letting it sit over night. I then started it again the next day it ran for 20 min. It started with no issues just fine the first try, but continued to do the sane thing as the day before.
What would come to mind as the most probable reason for this?
