You guys were exactly right. I checked for the slack timing chain and sure enough it had a lot of slack in it. After experimenting with the timeing it seamed to run best at 8 degrees BTDC so that is what I set it at. The car runs better, and has stopped coughing up the carburator, but still does not start very well. I have an idea there is so much slack in that timing chain I will probably have to replace it to get those quick starts again. Thanks so much for your input.
