Joekool came closest to figuring out what was wrong with my carb. He noticed that the problem seemed to be associated with one plane of the intake manifold. I changed plugs and leaned down that idle screw to no avail. It was still missing badly on 1,4,6,and 7 and the idle screw on that side wouldn't adjust. I took the primary venturi boosters out and found some trash in the small brass tube on the bottom of the booster on the side of the carb I was having trouble with. Cleaned it out and she now purrs like a kitten. Joekool spotted an important clue and made me concentrate my efforts on that one side of the carb. One hole, actually, the drivers side primary. Thanks, Joe.
