Condition: Running on three cylinders but has weak looking spark on all plugs.  Body is straight, except bonnet was folded over the windshield.  All four cylinders have great compression at 110-120 psi.  Oil cooler lines are twisted and have been sweating for a very long time which has preserved the entire right side of the engine bay and grill area.  Was only making power on three cylinders until I figured out that number 4's weber had the screw that positions the venture/choke was MIA.  This allows the venture to shift out of position in the carbs bore so as not to allow fuel to enter the throat of the venture.  There were some "rocks" in the bottom of the float chamber too.
