My car (with Stroms) does this also, usually after sitting for a couple of weeks. I've always been able to get the other two cylinders making power by tapping (USUALLY lightly) on the carbs and then driving a short distance.

One good thing about this is, it feels really cool when the other two cylinders kick in as you drive!

I've always thought that, in my particular case, either one of the carb jets is clogging up, or one of the floats is sticking and starving a carb of gas. The tapping has never failed to get things working normally again for me. I have every intention of rebuilding my carbs someday, using Mark's tech article as a guide, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Good luck!
