Well.... Its running. Sort of. Cyl #3 is weak/misfiring.
I took the plugs out, cleaned each one with solvent and a wire brush. Pulled some fuel out of my gas can with a cattle syringe and injected a small amount of fuel into each cylinder as I hand tightened back the spark plugs....
Got in... a couple of cranks.... and vroom... sort of. A lot of misfiring until the car came up to temp. Then the idle evened out.
I took it for a short drive hence the photo.... but as It went, it started missing on a single cylinder. So I turned around, drove home... and once I had the car under roof again, I started pulling plug wires with it running.
When I got to cyl#3 and pulled the lead off... no change in the idle.
Each other cylinder produced an appreciable change in the idle when the plug wire was removed....
So, either I have a dead plug.... or... bad wires. Because I've confirmed yesterday all cylinders were getting fuel.... and all have compression.
At least now it starts. Btw, removing the wire from the CSS didnt change anything... not judging the advice... just reporting no change.
Any other thoughts out there for tuning or diagnosis of cyl#3 issue?
