OK, 2nd week in a row motor has run like a dog. Misses coming off the corner to the flagstand and then it clears up through the next corner. Only does it under a load, not in the garage. Swapped out carb, fuel lines, fuel filter, fuel pump, added another engine ground. Checked timing, battery, plugs, firing order, etc. The distributor was taken out of a running car and put in this engine. Next step is to put another distributor in. What are we missing? Most of the time its a HIGH RPM miss. Our clears up at 4000.
