    \"Carb won\'t idle down\"

    Who ever posted this problem should check to see if the throttle plates are hitting the gasket. Loosen the carb and make sure that the butterflies (throttle plates) are opening all the way, and also closing all the way.

    This was posted in the 2nd generation forum. I can not post there yet, I did want to let the guy know a possible fix is all.Thought he might see it here.
