I have not done a compression or leakdown test. That'll be next on my list of things to try. I'm also not sure how old the spark plug wires and caps are, and the coils are original. I've been told that 95% of carb issues are electrical anyway. I'll do some initial electrical tests later this morning and see what I get.
Set valves again, engine stone cold, use Go/No-go gauges. Pay particular attention to the exhaust valves.
