Yet Another update for my misfiring problems.  As per recomendations on VV 
I pulled the carb apart to check out the diaphram.  It looked good, but I 
replaced it anyway just to be sure.  There was no improvement in the car's 
performance.  It misfires often when cold and above 2500 rpms when up to 

An interesting thing happened today when I checked my mail.  I had 
received a package from Clark's.  I was a bit surprised since I wasn't 
waiting for any outstanding orders.  Inside the package were 6 spark plug 
wire boots and a note stating that the Mag wires I purchased and installed 
just before this long trip were faulty.  The boots were produced 
with the wrong rubber and can cause skipping and arcing.

Could this be the root of my problem???   We shall see.  

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks to all for your continued support and suggestions.  I look forward 
to the day when I can proclaim this problem fixed!
