Have a 71 tr6c,took the mufflers off trying to run straight pipes, flooded out,left it alone for 2-3 weeks, went to crank it after putting mufflers back on and it won't crank....any suggestions?

It should have started OK,with or without mufflers.

Have you got sparks at the spark plugs?What ignition do you have?
Are the pilot jets blocked in the carbs?

If it is electric start, charge the battery, or jump start it. Standard thing if it doesn't crank at all, or tries to but cuts out.

If it's kick start, does it turn over at all?

When you say it wont crank,i am guessing that you find the engine siezed.That will be the kickstart mechanism if that is what you mean.If so,put it in gear and rock it back and forward to free it off
