Played with it and played with it today starting out with the settings Maxy mentioned above...At those settings it was extremely rich on the low end, then after I leaned out the bottom a little, it was still acting the same. If I got the low end lean enough that it wouldn't die in transition to the high, then the rpms would hang when I came off thottle...then a couple blips to get it to drop rpm...changed carbs out with my older siete engine, and it now idles good with smooth, crisp transition to high, and then back down to good idle....I think my carb needs a good going through. Lol

What is the air gap? On bench, fuel line full of fuel when it stalls? It take a few blips on throttle before idle drops?

Lean the bottom a touch more until you hear the idle rise then lower the idle.
