I originally missed the part where you said it was a reman from the parts store. I'm sorry but what you have is a useless lump of pot metal. Parts store reman carbs work correctly less than 50% of the time. Much less. I don't know why they even still sell them.

Made a few adjustments and timed the engine and wolla, the engine purrs like a kitten on cat nip.
Thanks so very much for your help I learned a lot about carbs by missing with this.
Glad you found the problem. Vacuum leaks are one of the most common problems that catch guys out.
