Get your self a carb kit, a couple of cans of 2plus2 carb cleaner ( not gumout that product dosn't work as well ), avalibale at Napa and do a rebuild. Tear carb down, completly clean and blow out every passage way, reaseble and set up clearences. Set mixture screws two turns out from seated position. This will get you in the ball park for start up. With car running, set idle as low as posible with out car stalling, place a vacuum gage on lower carb base plate to read manifold vacuum. Adjust your mix screws in and out, one at a time to establish your highest vacuum reading. You should recheck your settings for a second time after your intial first setting. Reset your idle screw to needed RPM, take it out for the road test. One last thing to look for, if you have a brass float in the carb check for fuel infiltration, if you have this problem replace flot. Good luck.
