SOURCE: runnin on one cylinder

First of all, did you remove BOTH spark plug wires for the cylinder? Each one has two spark plugs/wires for a total of four.
It sounds like your carbs are out of sync. One cylinder may be getting too much fuel and fouling out. You need a carb sync tool that hooks up to the vacuum ports on each cylinder to see if both are pulling the same amount of vacuum/fuel.
