i can't believe i'm this stupid. i decided to pull a plug and see what i could tell. the only thing i could read was that i had run some octane boost through it earlier this week. the off shoot was that i happened to decide to check the distributor end of the plug wires and found that they weren't seated on the cap completely. pushed them all down until they snapped into place and poured a can o sea foam in the tank. put in about an hour behind the wheel and couldn't get a ping out of it until i climbed thrill hill while accelerating and even then it was minimal. starting to wonder if i need to re-jet the carb or not. ambient temperature was only around 70. i want to run it in town on a 95 degree day before i go calling it fixed. never crossed my mind to check the distributor end of the wires when i changed the plugs. i'm going to check the same plug in the morning and see what i find now. this just seems a little too simple.
