Yes I ment afterfire. I fixed the vacuum leak. The cheap gaskets that came with the carb spacer were leaking. I made 2 new ones out of a sheet of gaskets material. Also found a few spark plugs that weren't very tight. I could almost turn them by hand. (my bad) adjusted floats because they were way off. It's now running alot better. Actually drivable now. Idles alot better

Still a slight miss in one of the driver side cylinders. Misses at idle and light throttle. Once rpms get higher it stops missing and I can feel the power difference when it kicks in. Im guessing 1800-2400 rpm it kicks back in (I have no tach)

The wires are about a month old. I'll have to check tonight to check for arching to headers. I'll check on the drop resister thing. Thanks
