Let me take it back.. something else is wrong.. on the way home you could feel a spotter.. and when I got back in town I could here it miss again..

I'm gonna make sure the intake is tight and pull the plugs.. maybe take an ohm reading on the plug wires..

Without reading all previous posts, do you have a vacuum leak?  Do you have power brakes?  If so, is your booster completely sealed?  (Caps on the extra lines?)

Wouldn't my vacuum gauge move around then?... When I'm going down the road at 50 mph it is steady at 16 in...( I have a gauge in the car)

I will check though... I curious what the rear plug on the passenger side looks like.. that was the one that fouled the last time I had a valley pan leak..

Keep the suggestions coming..

Double check the points setting. They do settle at times.

Well.. I pulled the plugs today to see if I see anything..

This is what I found..



I turned out to be a loose intake bolt on the passenger font of the intake. I swear I checked those..

This is the second bolt that has come loose on this aluminum intake since I put it on..grrrrr..

For running a holley, the plug color is perfect..

One thing I did notice was until the engine warms up, the secondary boosters drip fuel, then it goes away when it is warm. I'm wondering why that would happen and if I should lower the float to compensate.

Lower the float to compensate, it is just a hair high, it is vaporizing as it gets warmer and stops.
 
Do you have a flat washer and a lock washer under the bolts on the intake manifold? If not, make it happen, the flat washer saves the aluminum surface, the lock washer keeps her tight.

I dropped the float.. but I can't seem to get it low enough to keep the fuel from coming out the site hole. I lowered it and put the plug back in.. It doesn't come through the boosters anymore. That's a good thing.

I pulled the needle and seat first to check for dirt and it was clean.

By chance, is the float the black phenolic material or brass? Next thing to check is a sunk float, the phenolic ones can be contaminated and gain weight if you handle them with your fingers, the oil damages them in some manner, some fuel additives can affect them, too.
 
Nothing wrong with a Holley, just gotta be smarter than a carb! Dooh...
