Great news

So I pulled the head and looked around and everything looked perfect.  No scratches, nothing.  Upon further investigation, and after consulting various gurus on ekn, I found that the problem was not even a fouled plug - but the clip that holds the needle in the carb slide broke and the needle slid into the jet and stopped the fuel flow.  So it went from a $$$ problem to a $2 fix.  And I learned some more about my carb as a result, so I may get that motor idling yet!

For now, it's time to pack for the Grand-Am race this weekend.  Kieran and Killeen are coming with me and I loaded up the truck with plain water, flavored (and bubbly) water, and Powerade.  The trick will be to make it down there early enough to get a good spot along the fence to set up the tent.
