Do you mean the where the leads go onto the coil pack or the feed from the ignition to the coil? do you think the carbs could be gunked up or shudnt they gunk up if been stored for 10 years thanks chris

If you're going to strip the carbs, clean them well and rebuild them. It will make a big difference and you will only do the job once. Get yourself a vacuum gauge set.

Welcome aboard v8. Those points mentioned should get you humming in fine style. It'sa real good idea to clean and rebuild the carbs if it's been stored that long.

Welcome to the forum where we all guess, as most doctors do, but we will fix you up at no expense....

I still have no idea of the difference between cleaning and rebuilding the carbs? Rebuilding for me is casting a new body for it, but anyway, clean or rebuild the crap out of them, 3 times in a row.
