    spitting gas out carb, runs ragged for ~30 seconds.  Cam timing and distributor skew gear  positions per manual.  I don't know what to do.  Any help will be appreciated!

    Are running mechanical fuel pump or electric?

    Check for spark...Try a new distributor rotor from Ships Mechanical in Portland.

    Thanks for your response. It's running now but doesn't idle yet, maybe more running time needed?  Or carb issues. advance set at 6 degrees BTDC
