Carb question and a clunky question..

Hi- I was wondering if any of youse guys know offhand what the factory spec settings are for the 2 barrel carter carb.
The people I bought it off of messed with it considerably to make up for a leak in the manifold and Id like to start off close to the original settings as I fine tune...
Also, I've noticed that occasionally when I'm just getting going, there is a clunking feeling coming from the back end it goes away as soon as I get any kind of speed (>5mph) U-Joint maybe?

typically the air screw 1.25 to 1.5 turns from full seat. however, your better off getting a holley 2 barrel carb and adapter plate and changing the carter. you will have tons of problems w/the carter in the future.its an easy swap and will savee you a ton of headaches. oh idle speed is about 800 rpm avg. the clunk could be a u-joint,bad pinion bearing,or incorrect lash in the rear end. hope that helps
