This is not sounding good Greg.
With the starter off, use a strong flat pry bar/screwdriver on the teeth of the flywheel to see if you can turn the engine.

Good news. Took out the plugs and it turns over with the starter. Smile No metal shavings on the plugs. Smile looks like alot of compression and not enough juice to the starter.

Old battery.

Switched battery charger over to engine start and it seems to turn over fine.

Thoughts?

Hydrolock! Did the same thing after about a minute, with the new battery.

Did a little research and it seems like it might not be getting oil.

Time to take the valve covers off to check for stuck lifters etc. Will need new gaskets. Evil or Very Mad

Drain oil pan and check for water. Rolling Eyes

Put new oil and filter Rolling Eyes


Jim mentioned.

"Could be missing the oil pump drive shaft that sits between the oil pump and distributor." Which would totally suck. Shocked

Install a mechanical oil gauge (any gauge will work 0-100psi) and do another test. If it reads zero after 10 seconds of running, shut it off.

77ish PSI.

Still runs then stop.


Next step I'm trying isto disconnecting the gas tank and fuel filter. Then run a alternate fuel line to a cup. Maybe the line is clogged

If thats not it. I'll try a new carb.

Are you sure that the fuel filter is OK? As I'm sure you know, dirty fuel filters can cause some of the symptoms you are experiencing.
I'm kind of a nut about fuel filters. Years ago, I had a car that just gave me fits trying to keep it running. After I tried numerous remedies, it all turned out to be a dirty fuel filter. My bad.

Is it dumping to much fuel?

I would look at the float and needle, sounds like the fuel isnt beening metered correctly, I would be careful with that beacause the fuel will wash the oil off the cylinder walls and cause a lot of damage
