Default Re: Mystery missfire .

No resolution as yet I have done the trick of holding no 4 lead off to induce a hotter spark but no change and I have swapped plugs about and tried different plugs .A previous post suggests a sticky valve . Got to thinking that the valve seats at cranking speed hence good compression but does not at idling speed . Next trick will be to do a compression test with the engine running on 1,2 and 3 hopefully low compression revealed if good compression its got me beat !!! I will let you know .So far swapped carbs ,distributer new gaskets on manifold plugs etc etc .

John in same place same weather .
