http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HLY-0-4777C/

only difference between a brand new carb and mine is that i drilled out my power valve channel restrictors i have solid floats and i have bigger needle and seats
the choke is still there but it is always open i dont use it i plan on milling the horn off but i wanna make sure i have dont all the internal changes i need to

try loosening all of the rocker arms 1/8 turn. I have seen rocekr arms set wrong on new engines SO many times. It may not be the cause, but it very well could be and its an easy fix.

Also, fix the turbos as previously noted.

ok so the break in is done but i cant get the car to idle it wont say running at anything under 2200 rpm i tried bringing the timing down from what i had it set at for the break in but if i bring it below 35 it wont run unless i turn the idle speed screw up to 2200rpm i to the vacuum can off so that i wouldnt get the previous 70 deg btdc
when i was turning the dist to retard the timing the motor revved up and then i turned the idle speed down to keep the engine rpm down but when i did it would start to die

Have you verified that the TDC mark on the balancer is @ true TDC?
