Re: Hello to all and a Vacuum question

Welcome to the wonderful world the carter carb!

I am still having some of the same problems you are... no easy fix. I just rebuilt the carb and its no better. I have found that the Transmission and Torque converter can cause poor idle problems. I drained and refilled my tranny and TC twice in one day to get the debris out and it helped a lot. The TC wasn't disengaging at idle in other words, it was always pushing the vehicle forward harder than it should therefore it was dieseling at the stop signs more than a poor idle. I finally adjusted my carb to idle at 1000rpms and just live with it til I can afford to replace it.
