Carb help

Anyone around JBLM know Holley carbs? My buddy and I rebuilt it yesterday and can't seem to get it tuned correctly. Was looking for some help if anyone can. Thanks and appreciate it.

It may be getting air that it shouldn't. Have you tried cranking down the air screws unitl it staggers and then backing them out until smooth?

If the screws thread all the way in and the rig keeps idling, you have an air leak. The screws are for the air, the throttle pump and needle valve control the fuel.

Thanks Bob I appreciate it. Found where I had a vacuum leak. I was missing 2 screws that weren't there before so there had to be RTV or something there. It was weird.
