I rebuilt the carb (4100) about a month ago. I usually rebuild it once a year as a matter of maintenance. I soaked it for a week in Berrymans and paid particular attention to blowing out all of the passages. Having said that I have never sent the carb to a professional rebuilder. That is something maybe I should consider. The throttle shafts and bushings could probably use some attention. I won't have my new car budget until March next year so I will have to wait for that. In the meantime the valvetrain looked like it was all moving when I had the valve covers off. I am wondering if I might have a lifter issue. It passed the eyeball test but I should at least pull the lifters for 4&7 and check them out. I'll let you know if I find anything. Thanks for all of the input. There have been some thoughtful suggestions.
