I bought a tach/dwell meter. I don't think it was helping that my dwell angle was 15 deg. off. I set the dwell angle to 30 deg and I got the timing to settle down @ 6 deg btdc. I can get it to idle @ 800 rpm, but about 5 - 10 seconds later the rpm slowly drops and the car dies. <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" /> I'm thinking that all arrows are pointing to vaccum leak either @ the carb or intake man. I'll update you guys later.
