Throttle cable too tight?
The vac operated throttle positioner on front of carb screw not backed off enough?
Recenty i have had trouble with old carbs hanging up. If i push the thottle lever down manually i get low idle. For some reason it hangs up. I added a spring to the spot where the auto trans would hook up. That ball shaped thing. The spring pulls straight down and finishes the job.
Thanks for reminding me .I totally forgot about that
I used to laugh at the man with a pinto :lol: , until I became a humble servicer of a tercel :|
