    Any suggestions

    Ive got a 78 cutlass with a 455 thats been sittin for about three years and im gonna be gettin it on the road again. Besides a battery and some good gas, anyone have some suggestions on what I might need to get it running to get it to my shop. Do you think the gas is still gonna be liquid or would it be gummed up already? Replace plugs?? Ignition module(HEI)?

    looks like you already touched everything. Gas is real likely to be bad, my want to check the fuel filter too.

    Check all fluid levels, and change plugs...
    See if it fires and then go from there.

    Yeap drain the gas, flush the carb and check the rest of the fluids. Also pop the wheels off and make ssure all is good with the brakes and no critters have set up home.

    Priming the oil system wouldn't hurt either.
