Thanks for letting us help. Don't worry too much about the throttle play, she already proved she could run and get you home in this condition, it just means you adjust the idle a little less because air is being sucked in there instead of the venturii itself, and maybe adjust the main jets a little bit to get the fuel/air ratio where it belongs. A strong enough throttle return spring will keep it from being an issue.

Carbs back from the machine shop, cleaned out really nicely.  I'll start reassembling tomorrow.  Still contemplating about bushing that throttle shaft, yeah I know I don't need to, but for 35 bucks, I'd feel a lot better about it.

No problem, if you have a place that will do it for what sounds like a reasonable price, it isn't a bad thing to do.

By the way Ed and Steve, you guys have been invaluable with this, thanks.  I know I'm asking basic, stupid questions, but you both have been real troopers about it.  Thank you.
I know it's only 35 bucks, but I would run it first to be sure the card survived.  Just smear sone vasoline on the base plates gaskets so they will come off easy.  Then get it bushed.  I hate to see good money put into bad.

I do have to say, my carb is in great shape now it's totally cleaned out, and all the gasket surfraces are cleaned.  Just have to decide if I want to use the fiber manifold to carb gasket, or buy one of the metallic ones that was on there when I took the carb off.

Go with the fiber one, it may be a phenolic material that is a good heat sink to prevent carb boiling.

There were two in the kit; a thick one and a thin one.

It liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiives!  Idles just a tad rough, just threw 6 gallons of gas in it and the gauge didn't move.....  But, it runs and runs out well.  I need a vac gauge so I can tune that carb right....  And I need to learn how to use it.

That sucks the crap out of those tiny holes.  May have gotten a piece stuck in one

If that isn't it, it may need a good tune up

It doesn't idle rough enough to make the engine shake, I can just hear it in the tailpipe.  It has a new cap and rotor, I'm wondering of the might be minor plug fouling from the "turpentine" that was in the tank.  I tuned this car just before I sold it.  Not even a 1000 miles one those plugs.

Good to hear all. Hey, she may just need to be run and warm up real good, push the throttle a few times on the road and take the rpm up and make her shift hard. Hey, she's been in hybernation for quite a while.
