so if you hold it to the floor and it starts? it may not be a vapor lock, it could be "boiling over" in the carb and flooding it, phenolic spacer should help with that, i had a couple of my cars do that...so far that plastic spacer has helped

starter just barely turns it over like its seized up.This all came about after I removed all the smog junk.Will look into another spacer.
