It could be choking itself too.

I would disconnect the air breather and see what it does as showcrop mentioned.
If it doesn't foul the plug then, it may just have a dirty air cleaner.

This is definitely not a fuel/air problem. Thanks for setting me on the right track. I have another question, though. I am trying to diagnose an electrical problem. I, now, have no spark at any plug. My service manual tells me to connect an ammeter between the negative battery terminal and the battery terminal of the ignition coil. Turn off the ignition switch and crank the engine with the starter and observe the ammeter reading. Here's my question: Will connecting the ammeter in this way allow me to crank the starter with the ignition switch in the off position? I am a bit of a luddite when it comes to electrical issues. any help will be greately appreciated. I did, however, discover a damaged connector and missing insulation on the wire that runs from the top of the coil to the center of the distributor cap. I'll replace this momentarily. Also, my manual refers to a "high tension" wire. What do they mean by this?

The sun just came up. I'll go out and try to fix this infernal machine. Thanks for your help. I may need another suggestion, later. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
