I can put the plugs on a wire wheel and clean them up where they look new again...but when I re-install them, the car still does not run and it is as if I did nothing to the plugs and they are still fouled. Will the sand blaster clean them better or differently to the point where they will be as new?
I will report on my carb findings after I run through all of the recommendations above. Also, gas sat in the carb a little too long and I got "varnish" or whatever that dried crusty gas is. I bought a rebuild kit and carb cleaner. I then took the carb bowls off and cleaned them up, replaced the power valves and the needle & seats. Is it possible this "srusty" gas may have blocked a passage way or something? Where do I look and what do I look for if I have dried gas in the carb? The carb did not sit that long, but obviously, it was enough to get that dried "varnish". When I first started out with this problem, I could smell that turpentine-like smell immediately. Since I have cleaned it up and replaced the components, I no longer get that odd smell, but I am still fouling the plugs.
Again, thank you all for your time and input. I have bought two Holley books and researched all kinds of stuff on the internet and the suggestions you guys are giving me can not be found on either one and your help is way more informative.
Will keep you posted.
