Fouled sparks

Problem solved.


I disassembled the carburetor and found a nozzle “force fitted” in there by the previous owner 🤦‍♂️


With a little love - it now runs well, and without fouling the “outer” plugs.


Perhaps running a little leaner will help fuel economy.

Still the plugs look nice and clean (perhaps too clean?!?) so cylinder 1,2,7,8 do fire and burn the carbon - but now a new problem (or two) showed its ugly face.


A massive hesitation during acceleration and “stuttering” above 45mph.


Time to take off the carb again.
