Time to remove the head and take a look at the gasket and rings...remove the nuts and soak the head bolts with pb blaster or Marvel Mystery Oil for a couple of days and then remove the head...if the problem is mechanical, you'll learn quite a bit by taking a look. Make sure your pan is clean and the little pipes that go from the value area to the mains seem to be free of junk. Take the timing gear cover off and take a look, turn the engine over with the crank and then you should know if you have a mechanical problem. If the timing is good, take the carburetor apart and clean it out...Make sure all you cable connections are clean and tight. Take the dash panel off and make sure the nuts on the amp meter and ignition switch are clean and tight. Ernie
