Got in the pickup the other day after its winter hibernation and it won't start.There is a spark, plenty of fuel and its getting to the carb.New earth leads fitted two years ago and they are all tight .Has electronic ignition and new solenoid two years ago.Anyone got any ideas or checks I can do?

Forgot to say, battery is fully charged

How old is the fuel? Pour some fuel or brake clean down the carb air intake. If it runs then dies it's bad fuel
