Question

I have a new problem with my 67 rs. Last night it stalled three times at idle in gear.
I'm thinking it could be my distributer or ignition. The coil is 6 months old and tested well 2weeks ago. My bat and alternater are working well. What else?

I have reset the floats on my edlebrock about 6 months ago. Do you think there too low again?

could be your float, or try adjusting the air/fuel mixture. I don't know a whole lot about carbs, but if it were me, thats where I would start

Cool

Did you try just setting the idle screw a little higher ? I would try that first , before turning the air & fuel screws, and getting things messed up...my two cents.

Thumbs up

I ended up setting the float again and reseting the mixture. She seems to be happy. Tomarow Iclean the distributer and check my coil again.
