Replaced the spark plugs, wires and the coil pack. Still never fixed the problem.

Loaded it up with 860 pounds of scrap metal-mostly cast iron from my old boiler that we just had replaced last month-and took it to the scrap yard.

Reinstalled my new 4" blocks upside down so the axle lines up with the leaf spring dowel now and tire is centered in the wheel well, way to go Summit, the pin was on the top, so I removed the 1/2 " pin and drilled out the hole to 5/8" and made a new 5/8" pin 1" long for the bottom and now everything lines up perfect. the tapered blocks are nice because they bring the pinion angle back down to about 3 degrees,
