WOW! Those are nice! They might just be too nice to install on the car! LOL
Actually I found a set on eBay off of a 67 220. Rebuilt the one I needed, using only the jets off of my original carb. The car starts and idles great now.
However, I still have the stalling problem I sought to remedy by replacing the bad carb. The car gets to somewhere just under 80C an the engine dies. I thought it was vapor-locking near the thermostat housing so I wrapped it in a small hose with reflective tape on the outside hoping that would help. Not a bit...
any ideas what could be causing it?
