carb is tuned now. 78 pri/80 sec. never changed the air bleeds. 38*total timing, 26* @ idle. problem was electrical. there was a short between the steering wheel and the gas pedal(points to self). thank you bird for the info, starting over put me in a spot where i was forced to tell myself that what i already know isnt always fact. at one point in time when i first installed the carb the sec throttle blades were open. they somehow closed. i guess the allen screw backed itself out somewhere along the line. i also noticed the screws holding the baseplate to the main body were loose. a quick reset and no more burning eyes @idle. see, never a bad idea to doublecheck things. thanks all for the input. cheers.
