Great advice per usual.


While you are at it. Check the compression on a few cylinders....lots of carbon buildup will raise the compression to  over 200lbs per cylinder. Clearing out the carbon, by whatever method you choose (Seafoam, GM Top End Engine Cleaner, or the dangerous water down the carbs method) may reduce the compression to the point where the starter turns the engine faster.
Just another thought
