1972 Cutlass Supreme will not start

Can anyone suggest any possible fix for a 1972 Cutlass Supreme that will not start. I turn the key and it will not crank. I use a screw driver on the starter and it starts. Any help is appreciated.

72 cutlass not starting

you may have a few problems. you will need a 12v test light and a helper. then 1. check neutral switch (likely) 2. broken or burned soliniod wire 3. bad ignition switch. hope this helps olds1948

I would assume that you have an automatic? You could try to rotate the collar to full left on steering column. It's quite possible that the back drive linkage is worn.
