Well got a new fuel filter and spark plugs in last night and did a cold compression test (really cold, -10 degrees, no heat where the car is!) they were all around 115 psi.
It kinda ran for about 20 seconds. Sounded like not firing on all cylinders! I checked the rotor cap and there are white powder burns on the inside (dont know what that is about).
Im gonna check the wires like suggested or get new wires . Also getting a good carb on friday, so hopefully some progress can be made friday night!

Thanks for all the good sugestions!

As for tonight back to work on my 51 gmc
