    A few days ago she was runnin fine. I tried to crank it the next day and really hard to start. Once started, super rough idle and dies if not constantly blipping the throttle. Used a fuel additive but nothing. This morning new plugs, wires, rotor, dist. cap, coil, pcv, fuel filter, crankcase filter, air filter, and still no improvement. Any ideas? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Sounds like you got some dirt holding the needle and seat open. Or something blocking the idle circuits. Which carb do you have?? when it idles, does it blow alot of black smoke??
