You need to pull your fuel filter and cut it open to see if it has disintegrated and debris gone down the carbs

thanks for the advice, the plugs are fireing good, no hissing sound, i sprayed a little carb cleaner around the vaccum hoses and carbs the motor didn't change. I WILL CHECK THE FUEL FILTER.

I got all the plastic off today. I found a big rat nest made out of insulation it also had a dead rat in it. I cleaned it all out and sprayed starter fluid all around carb, still no change in the motor. all three plugs on right side are firing but when I pull the plug wire some times it makes a little difference some times none. I sprayed a little starter fluid in the right carb and the motot rived up. Does it sound like the idle jet is stoped up? thanks

Do a carb sync one carb is pulling stronger than the other and please check the fuel filter as some of them have disintegrated and blocked the carbs on other guys i just want to eliminate it

go back to the rat nest, that is likely your problem, either stuff sucked in by the engine or a hole chewed in something whether it be a hose, the intake system or a wire

check the vacuume line from the petcock if it is slightly leaking that direction it will bleed fuel into that side and miss on that side...had one with this problem...oh and if rats in the cellar ...could be results of lotsa past meals.
