silver, you should be able to get that cam dialed in easily. the fact that the car won't idle down even with the idle screws backed clear out is definately a problem. that sounds like a massive vacuum leak, or throttle plates hanging open. you should be able to idle it down to the point it dies. i'd start by seriously looking into a vacuum leak first, using propane or carb cleaner or what have you. the road demon is kind of a touchy carb it seems, but it ran before it should run again. the way i dialed in my speed demon when i bought it, was get the fast idle screws so they just come in contact w/ the cam, but no movement, then turn it about 1/2 a turn. both of them the same. then set the 4 corner screws at 1 1/4 turns, again equally. then start the car (another person is nice), and if it won't idle, bump the fast idle screws up a bit, again evenly, untill it will idle. then adjust the four corner, then the fast idle, then the four corner, etc,etc, untill you get it running right. don't set the four corner screws far off from one another, mine runs best with 1 1/4 and 1 1/8, front rear. you'll love the cam when its right, isky cams are great. and by no means advance it any, isky cams routinely start out about 3-4 degrees advanced from the factory, as are other manufacturers. it really is likely a tuning issue, imo. just double check everything, esp. the simple stuff, and look into the possibility of a vacuum leak. good luck with it, you'll get it [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
