It still idles too fast. I checked all the vacuum hoses, brake booster, sprayed WD40 around the carb base plate gasket and intake manifold gasket and no luck. I was wrong on the V cuts in throttle plates; my mistake.
I have installed a rebuild kit and bushings from Cliff and they worked well. The engine idles great at 1800 rpm and revs nicely. All I need is a stall converter
I am running the stock smog intake manifold. I wonder if I have a runner crack or leak and spraying WD40 on the intake gasket won't reach the underneath of the intake gasket?
I checked the distributor vacuum advance hose and vacuum advance is working.
When running the engine I run it with out a air filter in the garage. Would the lack of a air filter cause too fast an idle?
I will be in the garage.
