Do some guys run the o rings and paper gaskets ...at the same time?
Don't use gaskets with O-rings.There are three reasons for using the thick O-ring.

....the ones where I forgot to put the little rubber balance tube that connects them.
Refer to page 1.

air leak and timing issue is formula for poor running! Glad you sorted it out and thanks for sharing it with the rest of us. Let us know how the timing works out as well. With the high idle, I suspect it is "too advanced" side of timing.

The fast idle was cured when I put the balance tube on. I think it was so lean that I had to
raise the slides enough to engage the low end of the needle circuit. Once that was fixed..idle was able to drop..mixture screws seemed to work etc....
of correct.

As for timing..the little PAZON window for initial timing got me within about 5 degrees of correct...just finished strobing at 4000 rpm. Need to get plates and insurance now!!!!!
