Baby's manifold and carb sealed up

Bill the short time 2nd owner, freshened up the head and freed up a stuck valve and got baby running (after sitting over 20 years in a barn), not real well though.
I discovered some air leaks around the manifold and base of he carb, so I made a gasket and got it all sealed up, I cleaned the points, plugs, and cap, and also dissasembled the carb and cleaned it. Finally I timed the engine and cleaned the points in the voltage regulator and it fired right up. It idles and revs very smooth now. Next up, change out the hoses and belts and stick a little baby cherry bomb muffler on it.
