It's alive!  Next is the clutch slave cylinder replacement, wiring for the tach and shift light and 9,000,000 other little things.

Man, this stuff is humbling.  I have been dealing with a dead cylinder.  Weeks of frustration... I checked for intake leaks when this appeared with carb cleaner and couldn't find any sign at the dead whole. So today, I rebuilt a different carb that I had, put it in place, tighten everything down and fired off the engine, only to have the exact same problem. Augh!!!

So I decided to use a propane torch to see if I had missed something, and as soon as it got near cylinder number 2, at the base of the intake manifold, the cylinder came to life. After 3 carb rebuilds on the 1st carb, rebuilding an entirely different carb and putting it in, it comes down to what I and others had thought it was in the 1st place.  A freaking intake air leak.
I am not sure why the carb cleaner didn't find it, but I am using propane for now on!

Thanks! That was on old, superhard radials.  2.6 60fts no matter how low an rpm I tried.
