MISSES OUT ON IDLE
CYL. # 2 & 3 ARE NOT FIRING ON IDLE. WHEN YOU SPEED IT UP A LITTLE IT SMOOTHS RIGHT OUT. WHEN YA HOLD YOUR PALM OVER CARB, # 1 IT KILLS THE ENGINE AND WHEN YOU DO THAT ON CARB # 2 IT DOES NOTHING TO THE ENGINE. NO VAC, THERE.. I HAVE 100 #'S OF COMP STRAIGHT THROUGH. EVEN WHEN YA SPEED IT UP AND IT RUNS SMOOTH THEN THERE STILL IS NO VAC ON # 2 CARB.
