My car doesn't seem to idel as smooth as it should. It surges up and
down and when I come to a stop it dies and needs to be restarted. I
have converted it to a petronics points eliminator kit and changeged
cap rotor plugs and wires. I'm note much of a wiz with carbaration. how
should I set the air fuel mix and idel? My carb may be just plane warn
out. Any one use one of Gordons? Do they need much adjustment when
installed?

Have you listened real close to the manifold for air leaks. It
sounds like you have openings, burns, holes, etc. in your intake
gasket and may need a new one.
