Ok finally after months of sitting in the garage and being ignored, I finally got some time to work my Opel.
Since it hasn't run in 10 years according to the original owner, I was a made sure I could manual turn over the engine, performed my first oil change.

Time to change the battery and give it a start up. No luck need new starter.

New starter finally installed. Engine tries to start but won't actually fire. Not getting any fuel to the carburater. Time to begin diagnosing the fuel system.

8/2013
Replace the fuel system with Electric fuel pump and new hoses. Still not running.
