I finally got around to starting my 73 GT6.  It started pretty easily 
considering that it has been 2.5 years since it last ran and that was only 
a brief test.  I set the timing to 12 before static and tried to set it to 
the spec 4 after while idling.  I could get no further than 2 before and it 
would slow down and start to miss and backfire.  It was idling at about 
900-1000.  It would also miss and backfire if I try to slow the idle to the 
spec 800-850.  It is also a little rich.

I still have plenty of things to check and try, but I thought I would see 
if anyone had any ideas which way to go.
