    Is your curb idle set tool low?
    Vacuum leak? (Those rubber hoses heat and crack, it's inevitable.)
    Leaky carb gasket or throttle bushing?
    Lots of little things.

    Little late on this , but it could be as simple as your plug wires! Give the wires a misting with a water bottle at night and look for the arcs. Hopefully I'm not insulting your intelligence but sometimes this gets overlooked, good luck!
