OK, secondaries are closed, still rich, correct? Float issue?  Take a small pin or screwdriver in the vent hole.  You should feel the float. When you push on it slightly, some gas will come out the jets.  If the float is stuck to bottom of bowl (happened to me!), the fuel will be in the vent and spill out.  If the float is all the ways at the top, it will feel like it is hitting the gasket.  Proper float level is slightly below the gasket level (which you can also feel).

The other idea is a leaking jet well(also happened to me!). Need to replace the JB weld, but I think discussing that with the rebuilder would be a good discussion. Let us know

Thanks to all for the feedback.  I was busy with yardwork for a couple days and didn't get back to the car until last night.  Throttle shaft bores are tight and the secondaries have full rotation and return to their stop position without any restrictions. I will play around with it some more and if it doesn't straighten up back she goes.  If anyone has other ideas get on here and let me know.  Thanks again...

congrats Chris, it is a nice feeling having Jerry confirm your car. I had him do mine as well

Beyond a NICE feeling I put a lot of stock in Certified cars and that should translate to value and keep the doubters at bay.

I would be interested in the service the Next time he makes a PNW swing.

  Its a shame more of us dont live closer..  I wouldnt mind helping others with little projects like this and for me to learn as well..   :D
Thanks Darrell and I couldn't agree more. The internet makes the world so small in a lot of ways, but even though I'd consider quite a few of you guys that I've never met in person friends, we can't shoot the bull or work on our cars together over a beer. Kind of a bummer... I appreciate the thoughts and ideas.

I think I will drink a "virtual" beer to that! ;)

Here's the 2 brackets inside one another.   The "AAC" stamped bracket at the bottom .... Perfect fit !   :)  I also cleaned up the other with a brash brush and there's no markings anywhere.

I assume these brackets were made from a die and punch machine with the stamping incorporated.

The reason for the water was to give the contrast of the chrome & primer but I probably wouldn't do it again..  Didnt really give the effect I wanted.  That is why after wiping the water off I sprayed the chrome again but not as heavy.  Its a shame more of us dont live closer..  I wouldnt mind helping others with little projects like this and for me to learn as well..   :D
