This is my first time to overhaul any engine. This truck has not had anything done to it and hasn't been run in over a year. I was hoping to get some advice along the way from this forum. I got a new battery. It cranks but does not start. Where would be the next place to go from here. Thanks for any advice in advance. If there is more information that I should provide, please let me know and I will. THANKS:)

maybe a bit late but not too late... pull each plug (blow out each well first) that way you can see what each looks like and then put a little oil in the cylinder. the gas sitting that long is no good, so address that.
A new dist. cap/rotor sure wouldn't hurt and look to see if you have spark.

First thing i always do is check for fuel and spark. 2nd thing before i try to start an engine sitting over 6 mths (with todays fuels) is install new plugs.
