I have been trying to get the engine to run smooth after a change of 
carburetors.  I could not get it to run right. The engine would miss 
and not run smooth as it did with the weber. I have got the timing 
right and set the valves.  I started the engine and could just keep it running.

Then I noticed that a spark between the carburetors and brake 
cylinder.  I was a high voltage spark.  I still not sure why it was 
there.  I check the ground strap and the ohm meter said it was 
grounded.  I check the engine block and the brake cylinder and they 
were grounded.

What could cause a spark and what should I do about It?
