Well I replaced the fuel pump, check the points gap. Thus far it is still acting the same. I also richened the mixture...and while it produced nice eye burning exhaust, didn't help the stumble and die issue. So set the carb back to previous settings. Next am checking for vaccum leaks. I'll swap the plugs....again...as I do hear a miss or two. Is there anyway to 'unfoul' plugs? These things aren't getting any cheaper these days.

Going to a car show in an hour or so.
