Well, to be honest, I'm a little torn. Durasparks on 8v don't function well with what appears to be an iridium plug which is why I mentioned Autolite 985s. Then on one hand, an MSD should fire a...

I'm throwing a big flag on those fancy spark plugs, unless my tired eyes aren't seeing the pic correctly. Autolite 985s (or equivalent of your preferred brand) gapped to .040. I'd do that first and...

Is it possible that it was rich enough to foul your plugs? I wouldn't think so but stranger things have happened.

Let's baseline this thing again. Stick something in there to hold the choke...

There's no way I would trust that cam anymore. Definitely plan on going back together with a new one.

It looks like you've got some room for adjustment there. With it completely cold, I'd probably blip the throttle to set the choke, loosen the three screws enough to be able to rotate the housing and...

Unless I forgot what you're doing, you may as well set the choke and see what happens.

I had a feeling you had a sneaky air leak hiding out somewhere. Glad you found it.

Disregard anything that guy says. He couldn't figure it out and is unable to move on.

As Uptillnow said, the bypass filter basically acts as a regulator so I'd just pull that regulator out and...

I was thinking spark issue as well. A higher load on the engine will make the spark want to jump somewhere other than across the plug if it can.

The float could also be low. It would have to...

If you want to pull one at a time and see how things feel without any lube on the bottom of the washer for a little piece of mind, I say go for it. You're working with a big chunk of cast iron and...

The OEM BBD on my '83 acted much the same way yours appears to. It had an 800ish idle with the speed screw all the way out, there was a trough in the plastic, stepped, fast-idle cam from the screw...

With an old BBD, it's not unreasonable to have quite an air leak through the throttle shafts, is it?

It sure can if the timing is pretty late. I don't know if your Howell will let you but if it will, next time you fire it up, have a timing light already hooked up ready to go and when it fires, go...

I think in this situation, I would set the head on, run a piston stop down #1 and find actual TDC, wrap a timing tape around the balancer and move on.

If this reads funky, it's because doing this...

If it's mostly a trail issue, have you considered a Holley 470 Truck Avenger? There's also a 2 barrel Sniper that'll support the fuel requirements of a small V8. I don't know anything about...

I've never had a chance to use it but I've heard that thick, moly stuff is really good for flat-tappet cams. A lot of guys absolutely swear by that stuff.

How long does this poor thing have to...

A voltage test on the coil positive during cranking when it's good and heat-soaked could be an interesting test. I'm guessing your ignition is stock and choked down to 8v, yes?
