So I checked the points gap it was perfect. I pulled the plugs and had spark on the left top and right bottom. The connections on the other two coil ends of the spark plug wire were so corroded they were not getting any spark. I cleaned house up there and and put in new plugs. I found the median range of the carbs with the idle air screws with out shorting the plugs. Next I will balance the airflow at idle with the idle adjuster screws so they are drawing the same. I do need a carb rebuild and I need new throttle cables. She runs and rides but will be better with more love.
