Funny how you managed to fit all that in one sentence. Were you asking what color the inside of the tires are? J/K.

Pull your distributor cap + check inside. Make sure the center carbon plug (goes to the coil above it) isn't burned.

Sounds like either the choke on the carburetor is stuck or you have a waterlogged float in the carburetor. When they changed the fuel filter they got it in in the right direction and they didn't lose the spring that holds it in the housing. You might take the air cleaner top off and look down the carburetor and see if it is dripping gasoline, if it is then you could have debris in the needle and seat or the sinking float. HTH

Sounds like you should rebuild your injector pod. They are known for bad diaphrams in the fuel psi regulator.
