ok. I am totally out of fucking ideas. All new intake gaskets, all new carb gaskets, carb completely rebuilt, timing perfect, compression perfect, however, runs rich as fuck. Going to get a new fuel pressure regulator, and hopefully that fixes it. It's so rich that fuel shoots out the exhaust. Still don't know why that would only kill 1 and 3 idle.

Stuck float valve or pushing way to much pressure for sure.

hehe nope. Fair question though, because i thought that too, then i swapped them and got a "banging" show.
"Banging show" Sounds like a porno flick Spence! lol

Right on! Because of the bad fpr, was it running lean or rich? Or could you tell?
