Is this is gear? If not set the idle speed when it is. There's going to be a difference between the two. You should be able to get it to idle at 1000 in gear. I'm thinking you're close. There was enough slot showing when I took it off my car that you can get the idle down some more. Try it and see.

You won't have to mess with the mixture screws at all.

It wasn't in gear. I always thought a carb was rich if it would idle on its own when stone cold and with no choke.

Ron, I am not being a smart a$$ but just go with it and adjust your idle hot.
Believe me I know sometimes it not easy and it is frustrating.
I spent all day last Sunday trying to get my 1250 to Idle on E85!!Yep burned like 5 gallon of fuel in the process..
For right now I would just make sure it Idles in gear,comes up on the TB if you have one and if it does and runs clean your good!! My 1150 will idle after it runs for about 30 second but then again it's 90* out..
Go make some runs \:D/ \:D/

I thought Bruce might want to know how it's acting. I'm not questioning, just reporting.

Ron, keep on posting what is going on. We'll just do the best we can with what you have.

Set the idle in gear and let's see how that works.

I was able to make one pass with the 80186, but I got no data recorded. This was an 1/8 mile run. It left good seemed to run clean until about 6,000 in third. I heard slight popping there, like it was a tad lean maybe. I had to put my 9375 on to make qualifying runs for the race. I know this is sort of a useless post without data or a second run, but it's all I have for the moment.

When going to the 9375, I shortened the throttle linkage 3 turns because the 80186 run was way slow with a 6.830 at 98.59. This with a stock Nova linkage rod with fine threads, so it didn't move it much. With a little more throttle, the 9375 went 6.548 at 103.30. The runs were in the same lane and 41 minutes apart. The 80186 pass was the 1st of the day and is usually a little slower.

I have data files from 2 runs last night, but I can't get Photobucket to complete the upload of the jpeg/screen shot. If someone is willing, I can email the jpeg and you could post it. If not, I'll send the file to Mark because he has Racepak also.

As much trouble as you've had with this carb, it's probably best to send that log to Mark so he can see all of it.

Blue is 2 circuit AFR
Yellow is 3 circuit AFR
3C has wider range but is leaner. The 2 circuit is a little less spikey.
Mark suggests 2 flats higher on floats and smaller MJ's, which will be my first adjustment. MJ's are 92 and I plan to go to 90.

So will 92 to 90 get me close? As the fall air gets better, won't AFR move leaner on its own?

Go with what Mark said first. It may lean out later with cooler weather but, you can go back to the 90 jets if needed.

I was just reading this thread, the thing with the ldle and it stalling when in gear hasn't been resolved yet?
Has anyone checked the ignition timing? It sounds to me like an engine with locked timing.
