How did you test for an intake leak? Spraying crap around it while running will only tell if you have an enormous leak; I'd pop the carb back off and find a cork or sink stopper that you can put a nipple through in order to gauge 15 psi into the manifold with the valves closed; Then detergent and water dribbled around it will foam at every hairline leak! It is not unusual to find leaks at the rivets and nipple inserts as well as at the nuts and ferrules...Cotten

Just for shits and grins...try the points at .019 and the plugs at .025. Worked for me.
