hello, 9iron. well new carburator on and some what adjusted. The hole point thing is mute i already have a compu fire. The metal plate (i couldnt get out) is related to the electronic ignition. I remember at hawthorne you told me a story about a loose screw on your eltronic ignition causing problems ? any more help would be valuable. on oct 5 or 6 next monday or tuesday i plan on taking the car to praire city to run it and see if the new carb fixed problem ( i dont think so).
