Well, found out the problem. In trying to get the car going, thinking it was the carb, I found that (after having the carb rebuilt) that I probably damaged one or several diaphragms. Lesson: Don't try to play mechanic unless you're sure of what you're doing.

Anyway, the car now gets me to work all right, but the idle is way off and I seem to be getting a sputter or "hiccup" when accelerating (Particularly at low RPMs) I, on the advice of a tech, adjusted the lower screw (or solenoid) on my Stromberg carb to let some pressure off the fuel needle. All this managed to do was increase consumption a bit and slightly increase RPMs. Unfortunatly, the problem still exists and I can't come to a complete stop without fear of the car stalling.

Any advice?

Could it be the choke?

Thanks again for all your help.
