my new motor is running like crap,,, why is my # 1 plug pretty much white while 7 an 8 are black and the rest are somewhere in between? talked to edelbrock and they reccommened a small change from where my carb was set from my old motor which ran fine..running a 95 jet and a 75x47 rod.motor sounds like it is loading up coming off idle,haven't had a chance to run it very hard cause my NEW trans is acting up...any ideas? thanks cranker

what kind of intake are you running? are you running a manual or electric choke? and is your #1 plug wet at all? what kind of ignition r u running?

Sounds like a intake that is not sealed.
