On the advice of one of our local members I tried pulling the choke when it started to stumble and it ran better with the richer mix. I get the impression that once the carbs and the oil in pistons warmed up and thinned that's when it started. So I will move up to a heavier oil and richen the carbs a bit. Not sure I will get this done any time soon though since I have hand surgery Tuesday.
67 basket case, the renewal has begun.

I think the Magic Number setting can be adjusted slightly. Though tedious, I suggest taking the domes off, adjusting just a tiny bit one way or another. So if you are at.090, you could try .088 or .091 , whatever. But the idea is to keep the carbs even and measured, instead of the old “1/4 turn” which who knows what that is. Hopefully as dbrick stated, once you have them set you should not need to mess with them. Then checking floats, be sure both really totally float. New floats are really ideal, I think since too many brass ones are leaking or have gobs of solder weighing them down. Nice to have a matched set.
I never have done what Tom was suggesting. Will have to try that.
I believe Keith has mentioned adjusting the ADQ needles in or out a smidgen too.
