Re: carbs and angles!
I have an Edelbrock, nearly identical to the Carter BBD. I am not sure what you mean by the "throttle blades." I wouls suggest that you get a complete rebuild kit from the store. If you have a leak it is a gasket 99% of the time. The lid, airhorn, gasket sounds like your problem and you can buy it seperately but I recommend the whole kit. If your lid gasket is leaking more than likely the internal gaskets on the venturi's are leaking and letting the fuel not get atomized properly, kinda like a bad seal on a piston ring. At any rate I hope this will fix your problem.
