Carb tuning: Bog off idle.

any updates? Very curious

Well, I changed to a new Dist but that didnt make a difference.

Though suddenly the car started to chug along like a steam train and if I went faster than walking speed it sounded like terrible detonation.

So creeping back into the garage I took the engine apart and found a blown head gasket and a cracked exhaust valve.

So now I have new valves on the way, then some valve job and new head gaskets....and we will see where that leads
