The new carbs would idle at about 850 to 900 with 100
(I'm remembering Bob Newhart's "Defusing a Bomb"
comedy line here.....
['This plate should be removed with an LT5
screwdriver with a plastic handle and a de-magnetised
tip'... Oh, you don't have one, huh?...
Augh!... use a coin then, Willard! ]
You don't have new carbs or 100 octane gas. Raise the
idle target to 1000 rpm but be careful when shifting
A good friend showed be how to use a piece of rubber
pipe (old rad hose?) to listen to the hiss of air at
each carb. A higher "hiss" noise meant greater vacuum
so we'd adjust the idle screw up or down depending on
which carb we were trying to match.
