Post 1966 230 dual carb question

hello all!

i hae a 1966 230, and i seem to have a problem with the dual carbs the car seems to die sometimes if i dont keep my foot on the gas(very lightly) i was told by a friend that they may need to be rebuilt. my questions are would it be a good idea to rebuild them or just buy some...also is there something that i can mess with on the carbs to keep it from staling?

thank you in advance!

have you tried adjusting your idle screw a bit?

I'm not at all familiar with your car - zenith carbs?
