Bert,

Thank you very much! I will probably read your post and make a check list before I attack it again.

This carburetor is a two-barrel. The second stage seems to be where the "starvation" occurs. The thing that rules out float needle/level issues is that it runs perfectly with the choke pulled out. Without choke it drives strong to 2500rpm, then acts like it is starving. If I have the engine running at 4000rpm then push the choke in, it will maintain the 4000rpm but not increase rpm.
