Ok an update.

I put a rubber ball hockey ball in the carb to form a tight seal.
Turned it over and bang. She fired right up.(even after being in a cold garage and not running for over 3 months). I suspect that means I have an air leak
somewhere. Only thing is once it starts it idles WAY to high. Have to shut
it down in seconds. Can that be the different ignition module I put in it not being compatable? I put a screaming eagle(8000 rpm) that was supposed to
be compatable. Or can that air problem be causing that?
Any ideas will be appreciated!


That could also be an air leak leaning out the mixture.
