Then the plugs fouled again. Another cleaning. When I tried to start it after that the battery was drained. Charged. Started. Stalled again. Wont start now. Plugs probly fouled again...and the battery is about shot. I can't get the negative cable off the battery cuz the nut is spinning around inside the battery post. Any ideas?

Nah, I wanna sell something I can make money on. Now, you might find out that next time you go back up to IL the Mach 1 might be gone.
