Estate dead engine? Help! 120-130 1968

Another reason for spitting through the carburetor is a bad exhaust lobe on the camshaft.
You can check for this by measuring the lift of each valve (difference between open and closed)
from the top surface of the head. If one or more is different, time for a new cam.
Normally this would NOT keep it from running but would make it run poorly and spit through
one of the carburetors.
It is NOT detectable by a compression check.
