I agree with anim8or Earl here, does sound more like a vacuum hose problem, apparently it is common to have damaged/split hose(s) under the mat at the base of the carbs...possibly a filter issue?..assuming you did a comprehensive job with the carby rebuild, maybe worth looking at the vacuum side of things, unfortunately it means pulling the carbs again.Re. the idle screws, this will have a major effect with the mixture(rich/lean), didn't think it directly effects idling?. Mine are set slightly differently as I used the plug colours to gauge mine by, but the book adjustment is a good starting point I guess. The carb syncing I would suggest is pretty much the last bit to do when you know everything else is fine. I don't want to give you incorrect info here, as I have only needed to rebuild my carbs once,and due to lack of experience, ended up taking them out several times until I got it right!...so, if a guru see's any of the above as being incorrect, please post as such.
