i know it's a chebby, but..

hello,

so i am a total newbie when it comes to carbureted gas engines. my boss just picked up a 1991 4x4 s10 blazer with the carbureted 4.3 for his son. i'm not 100% sure on everything it's doing so bear with me here:

1. there was no fuel filter when we got it, just roughly an 8" break in the fuel line. we fixed that first and moved on to trying to see if it would turn over.

2. here comes the weird part: not sure if this vehicle was stolen before or something but someone took the ignition switch apart and the actual switch is dangling, making it a "pull start" (basicaly the key does nothing, you just pull the switch out one stop and the batteries turn on, pull it out one more to get to where it seems like it should try to start the engine). we pulled on it and nothing happened, doesn't turn over or anything. i figure we should check the starter, and starter relay but i don't know where these are located on this engine.

3. we haven't gotten to checking the fuel pump, as one of the bolts on the gas tank bracket is horribly seized and we couldn't get it off, but i figured it would at least turn over even with a bad pump. could be wrong though.

4. we replaced all the fuses in the panel on the drivers side dash, is there another one? also i figured there would be a power distributor of some sort under the hood but i failed to find it in the available light at 2am.

anyone have any ideas?

i'm not the one wasting money, i'm just helping him out. i guess he got it for free, or near it.. less than $500 as far as i know. body, frame, and drivetrain is all good.. just can't get the engine to turn over.

Try jumping it at the starter that will tell you if its in between the starter and the switch.
