check it tonight, one of the spark plugs was fouled, replaced it. ran alright then started running like crap again. Here's the new twist. The carb is an electric choke. Some guys put the thing together for me a while back and used a wire tie to hold the choke open. Shouldn't this make the car run a little lean? The car runs really rich, regardless of the adjustment screws. At this point I'm relatively certain that the problem, although made worse by the fouled plug, is in the carb. Would the wire tie holding the choke open be it, maybe dirt? I bought the rebuild kit but don't know when I'll have enough time to actually do it. After all this stuff with the carb and everything, the car won't even run right. And my girlfriend (of two years) and I broke up tonight.. what a day.
