Weber Guru wanted

Ok guys, here is the deal. I've been running a weber 32/36 for a few months.....just got my weber book....and now wanna get it running REALLY well!
It's on an 88.5 1.3 liter, with about 130-140k miles on it. It also has a 4into1 header, and 2 inch exhaust all the way back, Jacob's ignition, plugs gapped to .040 (I think, I opened them up with the ignition), and timing was just set to 11-12 degrees advance.
Now, it is idling nicely, but I am finding the mixture screw in 1.5 turns, and the idle speed in only 0-1/4 turn from contact. My sources seem to indicate this might need a SMALLER idle jet? Mainly based on the lack of "turn in" on the idle speed screw. Any ideas? Suggestions? how close am I to understanding this new toy of mine????
Thanks a bunch in advance!

Re: Weber Guru wanted

Did you set the idle jet and throttle plate like they say to in your book? exactly?
What size idle jet do you have?? What altitude are you at?
What size main fuel and air jets do you have?
Are you trying to get it to idle better or more accel/power?
I have learned the secret for the webers and samurais through trial and error.
Let me know more and I can help you.

Re: Weber Guru wanted

Ok Andy,
All the jets are stock from the factory. As for altitude, we are mostly sea level I think. It rarely gets to 4000 feet anymore.....there ain't too many mountains in Alabama! As for performance, I would like a stonger idle/low end. I'm looking for a nice transition off of idle. To avoid stalls while rockcrawling.....WOT is not as important.
Let me know if you need anymore info!
