If you are fouling plugs you might try shorteneing the pump stroke. With the adjustment via the "fork" on the back side of the pump actuator arm you can control where the pump starts pumping. You cannot control when it stops without changing the diapharam stop bottoming pin lenght or installing a device like the P-38 lightnening.
If you spread the fork it will cause the pump stroke to be longer pumping in more fuel on each whack of the throttle. If you close the fork the pump will start pumping immediatly but WILL STOP SOONER. This means the shot of fuel is not as long an less fuel enters the engine for each stroke of the pump. This is what you want a shorter stroke and on the 99 it means starting sooner and finishing sooner.
So using a needle nose plier close the gap slighly on the fork and it will cause the stroke of the pump to be shorter. Give it a try you can always bend it back. In general shorter stroke is better if fouling is a problem.
