Chaplain, you crack me up!! Ha Ha!

Here is an update: After I installed new spark plugs which were ac delco 10's which are a rapid fire plug, I went to start her up. Ran like the choke was stuck and could hear a weird clicking noise in the distributor. Then it backfired really loud and stalled itself. I took off the new components that I had on it (distributor cap, ignition module, capacitor and rotor button) and put the old stuff back on it and runs fine. I do believe my choke is sticking a little. I am going to replace one component at a time to figure out which is faulty. I suspect it may be the new ignition module.
