I think I've read every thread on erratic idle problems so I know there are many of you out that are having difficulty "tuning" your Weber setup. I started by adjusted the ignition timing, set the dwell, and even rebuilt the DCNF's. Proceded to equlize the carbs...air bypass closed, mixture 3 turns out, and idle at 1000 rpm's. Using the Synchrometer checked all mated throats in each carb. All matched except one. Loosened the nut and turned the air bypasss screw out just enough to balance the two. Completed the whole adjustment/balancing procedure and then spent the next several weeks trying to get the engine to idle correctly. Used both ways to set the idle...idle stop screws and then use only the linkage. It would shoot up to 2000rpm and hang there or start to drop and stall. Kinda all over the place. I finally isolated the offending bank of carbs by disconnecting the linkage and revving each bank separately. The front bank returned to idle immediately but revved the rear bank and the idle would hang up. Spent hours trying to figure out what was causing the problem. Finally looked at the throat that was out of balance from the beginning, you know the one that I opened the air bypass screw to adjust. When I would turn the air/fuel mixture on that throat it would not effect the engine rpm's. I pulled the spark plug wire and no change in the engine speed but there was spark at that wire. I thought that by opening the air bypass screw I was creating a vacuum leak in affect and I could not feed in enought fuel thru the mixture screw to get the cylinder to fire. I deceided the heck with what the meter said and closed the air bypass screw, adjusted the mixture and low and behold the cylinder joined in and the idle stablized and held at 1000. The car is now running great (except for a flat spot which I hope to fix). The point of this threads to alert you on the possibility of the air bypass adjustment may be causing your idle problems. I know that this was not mentioned in previous threads so here it is for your info. Hope it may help someone.
