I am having trouble getting my '37 Special Sedan started. I removed the spark plugs, and they were sparking. They were also wet with gasoline, so I assumed that means that the cylinders are getting fuel. My only guess is that the engine is not turning over fast enough. The car is still a 6-volt system, and the battery is a reguar 6-volt battery from an auto parts store. Do I need a stronger battery, like a deep cycle battery, or should the regular battery be able to turn the engine over fast enough? I am pretty sure that slow cranking is the problem, since we were able to get the car started by pulling it with a truck and popping the clutch. Any suggestions?
