the 17 dodge stars and idles fine for a while, but when you give it gas she stalls out. she will start right up again , sometimes backfireing and the plugs keep clogging up with carbon. I took off the head, cleaned the carbon, some of it was shiny ,like anti freeze was leaking through the gasket. I put on new gasket, rebuilt vacume pump, checked for cracks , blew out the lines replaced gas filter . still no luck. took off and cleaned carburetor , still wont run. could it be points? timing off? the choke worked when I took off carb. but maby there is something I didn't see. if I were in CT I would bring it to the shop , but down here in florida I don't know anyone. I didn't think that this would be so complicated, shes been running great the past few years. I would appreciate any help..thanks
