Re: new engine start-up problems

Checked and triple checked that the distributor is pointed at #1 when the thumb blows off #1 spark plug hole. The spacer should make no difference.

Re: new engine start-up problems

Re: new engine start-up problems

I agree - weak/improper ignition will allow the plugs to be wet.
Two ideas come to mind: either throw another crab distributor on there, or throw another intake on there (stock with a single carb....
