After once again pulling the rack from the Hunley to try and find why #2 plug fouls in less than 20 miles, I finally found it. The needle jet (holder?) was wallowed out seriously. Replaced it with one from the junker '79 and then took her for ~40 miles shake-down ride over Norris Dam. Result: no fouling! Then, pulled the project '79 out, hooked up fuel, and fired it up. Only static-timed and carbs not balance, but sounded pretty good. Today I registered it and will add it to my Dairyland policy.
