The engine in my '51 has a miss or a skip. I have gone through all the tune up procedures except confirming time. I'll have to mark the dot as the light did not pick it up. It has new properly gapped plugs, new points set to spec, a good set of wires, good cap and rotor. The timing light shows the skip. The carburetor is a freshly overhauled 94. The vacuum gauge reads 20(good engine) in the middle of the green. I set the carburetor by vacuum gauge. Out has a very small effect, in it starts to stumble back out it smooths out. I had to adjust the idle down a little after the headers were installed. The 94 is very cool when it's running and will form condensation on the carburetor body. The carburetor bowl does get wet with gasoline, just barely. It's hard to tell if it's the bowl plugs or the top gasket. It does not drip but you can see the moisture on the casting. The iron bottom of the carburetor seems to seep a little gasoline but....not a bad leak but it does seem to seep gas a little at the base. I have not ran a compression check. Would I need to with the vacuum gauge reading in the green? The needle is dead steady no bouncing. You can feel the skip in the exhaust gas coming from the headers. It seems to be more prominent on the driver's side. I'm thinking it may need a float adjustment or the carburetor may be dribbling gasoline. How do I correct this? What's my next step.
