To Drill or Not To Drill (Carb Question)



Ok, time to vote.

I've got one of those rough idle, stinky smelly, burn your eyes out difficult to idle situations with my BB chevy rebuild. New big cam installed. No vacuum leaks. If I can't get the idle mixture screws to do the trick and refuse to buy a new carb at this time, should I try drilling 1/8" holes in the primary throttle plates to make the engine run leaner?

Please vote yes or no.

thanks.
