Ron, I'll put in one of these other needles and see what happens, wires seem
good and timing light shows good on each one.

Jim, that was the first thing I did, showed 205 on cylinders 1, 2, and 3 but
only 185 on 4.  That was the FIRST thing that I did..For an engine with less
than 20 miles on it that difference bothers me and did from the start.  That
said, it's spitting out the front carb..
