Al: How does the #2 plug look when you pull it after running?
Will a known good plug grounded against the block , with #2 wire attached,
produce a good spark?

>> Cam is non stock; supposed to be a 270 cam.
>> I reset the valves to .012 inake & .014 exhaust.
>> Better, but still skipping.
>> I went on the electrical hunt:
>> Changed Plugs, still skipping.
>> Changed plug wires, nothing yet.
>> Changed distributer cap. Some improvement, At least car could go down
>> Went about 10 miles, Alternator light started coming on, started
>> some more.
>> There still doesn't seem to be any spark in # 2 cylinder.
>> At least when I unplug # 2 theres no difference.
>> If I unplug any of the other spark plugs the idle changes.
>> Running out of ideas
