Should I go to a hotter plug or change the carb or both. I have slighly advanced the distributor. Thanks Tom
A hotter plug is nothing more than a band-aid on a broken arm. I'm not going to tell you to replace the carb, but what you need to do is isolate the problem and repair it, whatever it may be.
