Its Detroit assembly lube for nuts and washers. It looks like peanut butter. What ever your normal torque is like a sb, with studs i add 5 lbs,so it would be 70 instead of 65.

I actually tried this and it dribble fuel from the secondaries. I need to really rebuild the carb with new powervalves cause the engine was very sooty with carbon buildup, its running way rich..

So I finally worked out a boatload of other issues on the car and got it running and on the street. There was an issue with the fuel cell deteriorating and sending crap into the entire carb so I cleaned and rebuilt the entire fuel system.

The car starts right up and idles nice at around 850-950, timing set to 32-34 degrees fixed. However after driving for a while i noticed the idle was hanging up at 1300-1500 and the car would break up if I tired to lug the engine at low speeds coming off a stop. I was also starting to get lots of eye burning smoke from the exhaust and in the cabin. Not clouds of it but a nice haze, that smelled like fuel.

Also one other thing I noticed is that on occasion the float bowls, despite being set properly will overflow. Fuel seems to blow by the bowl after sitting overnight and dribble out. The needles and seats are brand new as well as all the accelerator pump stuff.

It seems like the fuel delivery is not consistent with this carb.

Please help me and talk me out of fuel injection at this point..

Hot soak.... dead head style fuel pressure regulator...(fuel pressure creep)
a return style system stays cooler and more consistant. may still be dirt infection in the system
or just bad needle seats.
The idle idle transition-primary main circuit on the carb probabily needs work. If it is too rich at idle low speed the engine "loads up"
in a short time.

I can screw the idle bleed screws all the way in with no change in idle.

Are there different needle and seat ratings? I think my needle and seat are for lower pressure, Im running a little over 6.5 PSI. i think I got the wrong needle and seats for my carb.

So can anyone assist me in my dilemma at this point? I have done as most suggested.

1) Set timing- 34 degrees with no advance (its locked out)
2) fresh plugs
3)cleaned out carb very well
4) took for a highway cruise it loves 3300+ RPMS

The issue is when I come to a light the car seems to load up a little, and burn my eyes with rich raw fuel. Something is dumping a little too much fuel at idle and just off idle.

If I lower the Idle screw anywhere below 1000 rpms it runs like **** off idle and burns my eyes and the transition between idle and throttle is a nice dead spot where it wants to die completely.

when Raise the screw to 1000 rpms it runs fairly well, but the idle adjustment screws do nothing, I can completely close them and the idle picks up...

I have 7 psi if fuel pressure and a 3.5 powervalve
I was thinking of lowering the fuel pressure to 5.5 psi but then dont know if it will starve up top..

Or I was thinking of lowering the powervalve to 2.5
