    Update : Had a chance this week finally to get back to sometime with the car. Found out spring in the brass adjuster for high speed air valve ( for lack of better description) is weak. Made a shim for it (temporary fix) made the carb balance out. No more lean bog. Also redid the packing on idle screw. No leaks there and got the needle to seat all the way and settled down the heavy rich smoke out the tail pipe. Still work to be done!! Distributor needs its advancement worked on too. Now my question, Where can I buy the correct spring to the brass screw barrel for the air board? Car drove good tonight but lacking power. Struggle to get past 35mph. I know the spring is coil binding most likely and motor isn't likely breathing enough air. Air board isn't traveling enough due to coil bind Thank you for all the members help......sure glad I found this group!!!

    I have purchased a rebuild kit from Bob's for mine. I know of other Buick owners that have and have had great success. Was planning on keeping electric for a back up

    the car came to me with a 6volt pump. I put on a regulator and dialed it down to 1/2 pound (half) to not over power the float and needle

    I had it apart and put in a kit from Bob's. New float also. Wish I could get a new needle and seat too ! I have worked on lots of carbs over the years and back in my muscle car days I liked making Rochesters work. Learned a few tricks way before the internet could ever help! (the80s). I really want to be able to idle in parades and such and take Charon out for dinner at our favorite spot on Saturday nights! I will in time. Well I'll start taking numbers as they say and start calling Tuesday to the couple people mentioned thank you all once again! Grant
