It's been off the road for a few months. Started missing at idle on #2 and after going through compression test (175,173,175,175), carbs, changing everything out on ignition, checking lift at each valve, I finally gave in and pulled the head. Machine shop found a rather long crack going across the top and down the side, but nothing in any combustion chambers (still not 100% satisfied that was the problem) I decided to use a small chamber head to get a bit more compression and after sending every...

I could buy the parts, but I'm limmeted on budget.
