    I was on my way to get gas, pulled in to the station and the blazer died. I filled up( i had an 1/8 left) and went to go on my way and it just turns and never starts up. Any thoughts on what could be wrong? It gets gas to the carb, maybe ignition? need help

    check for spark first and foremost, if spark pull the gas feed line and have someone crank it. Careful where you point it. If your getting gas and spark you eliminated those two problems.

    If you have HEI, I'd check the ignition module under the distributor cap. That can go bad the way you describe.
