    I got a smoke machine. I found only the leaks I expected to find, so that's a win. Both ends of the throttle shaft.

    Is there any bad bandaid way to help that out besides replacing the carb and drilling/bushing the carb? Grease or an o-ring or something? I won't have this carb for a long time before I rebuild the induction, but I wouldn't mind if I never hit 16:1 AFR at traffic lights. Idles surprisingly well at 16:1. But if I'm floating along a 25 mph zone and it does that I get a deal of lean surge.

    Drill the jets slightly bigger and set the float level a little higher without it flooding over at idle. Maybe 1/16" higher.
