This is a 79 Toyota rock crawler that is powered by a 350 with an edelbrock carb. Or.. is not so much powered by it now, since it doesn't run now...
I drive it every weekend, and it always started kinda hard in cold weather, could be sluggish driving at times acting kinda gutless. I know there was something wrong and I was trying to find the culprit, but I don't know carbs AT ALL, or distributors, points, etc.
Today it fired and ran a while, then stalled and I've tried 3 hours now and it refuses to run. It will fire a little while the starter is rolling, but it won't actually run by itself. I changed the plugs today, gapped at .45 (thats what the old plugs were) with no change.
Has an inline fuel filter just before the carb, and there is fuel on either side of the filter, so the carb is definitely getting fuel.
I think I've narrowed it down tho, I had both carb screws turned out 2 turns, and after cranking a while, the plugs on the passenger side were soaked with fuel, the ones on the drivers side were dry. I did notice a burn mark on one of the plug wires on the ds too. Its an edelbrock 600cfm carb.
Any ideas or suggestions? I was planning on getting it to a shop, but I can't do that if it isn't running
