Advance is hooked up, and the line going to it is hole free. We have messed with the springs in the distriburator a little trying to get better results. not much luck. There is no lock out installed... might sound dumb but is that something you buy or something you modify?

The carb is a manual choke and we have tried to richen the mixture... no wideband to test the air/fuel though.

The fuel pump was kickin out about 8 or 9 psi at idle so we put a regulator on it... not sure if that disproves anything or not, but it is a stock mecanical pump, not sure why it is putting out so many psi.I may hook up the eletrical pump again to make sure its not fuel pump related.

Thanks for all the replys! Hopefully we can get this thing figured out before we get too much snow!
