yes. It still won't start, even today. Nothing is rusted or stuck, the damn engine just won't start. I took the hood off before this happened (obviously) does the hood on these cars HAVE to be at least connected to the car for the engine to start? I did'nt know if that was some kind of safety precaution that I missed in the manual. Anyway I tried that and it did'nt work either. I've never had a single problem with this car starting or running..I only started rebuilding it two weeks ago and I did NOT touch the engine..all of a sudden I can't get the car to start at all..but its' not like its' been sitting in my driveway for 2 years..just a few DAYS. What the HELL did I do to it??????

OK, everything should be fine now. I called Mustang Magic here on the island and he knew right off what the problem was. I took four of the sparkplugs out and used a wet/dry vac to suck the water (and some gas) from the sockets..then I put the plugs back in and when I turned the key, I kept the clutch depressed and gave it plenty of gas until it started...Only I did'nt put the plugs back in tight enough, so I spilled gas all over the driveway and the engine block...I'll tighten them tomorrow and go right up to the gas station..
