    Pulling plug #3 has almost no effect on how the engine runs. Hmm!

    In other news, twiddling the idle air screws on the carburetor has much more effect on the driver side (cylinders 4-6) than on the passenger side (1-3). I can back the idle air screw out *WAY* more on 1-3 before the idle starts to get worse.

    Also, I managed to burn 1/4 tank of gas on a ~50-mile drive.

    Methinks I may have a vacuum leak ...

    Look at plug 3 and compare it to some others easy to get to.

    Time to buy a cigar?

    ... And some rubber plugs to stop up the holes on the intake manifold once the carburetor is removed. The last time I did this kind of test I just used a ton of tape. This time I'd rather do something that takes less time to do and undo. Two small-ish rubber plugs should do it. I'll drill a hole in one of them to stick a length of hose into, to blow the smoke through.

    The question is how to get rid of the cigar smell before the wife comes home. ;-)
