    Had an amazing cruise. Almost 4 hours long. I shook her down. Plenty of highway time, running 100 kmh+ I pulled the #6 plug and must sadly report that it started looking pretty wet and gummed up. Spoke to my motor builder and advised him, along with other symptoms such as the RPMs not decreasing...

    I will! The other side are all like the good ones on the bad side! Do you mean fully swipe a wire? as in from the distributor to the plug (unplug from both end)? I'll eliminate the bad plug bad wire out of the equation!! me likes LOL

    So here is a photo of the swapped plug in #6 after a spin yesterday evening! Wasn't a long ride by all means and at city speed. Not sure if the fact that the side terminal is wet and black a bad sign or simply shows that I need to take it for a descent rip to see?

    You did also mention that as far as the sound is concerned, it's what happens when you block off the heat cross over port in the intake manifold on these engines.

    Thank you all. I did build this for long haul rides up to the farm! I haven't had much time with it!!! This morning I did check the plug (#6) and no fouling, but as you all said, need to get out there for a long cruise. Yes to progressive linkage, no choke. I was aware of the centre carb only...

    '58 - 348 Tri Power (Question P.15)

    Did exactly that and took it for a spin. I'll pull the #6 spark out again in the morning and see if it fouled. Couldn't tell about the sound....I think i'm loosing it now, I can't tell anymore....Lol I think it sounded different. hard on my ears, this thing is loud even with the main headers...
