Is this thing points?
You know your way around it well? Or are you sorta a beginner?
To me, if it runs well upon "more throttle". Sounds like it's getting enough fuel off of the "mains"
I don't know your "status". So I might be talking, as if you might be "Dummer than me!"
Did you rebuild your carb like a pro. Or did you fiddle with it for hours (like I do) wondering how it all goes back together?
At this point, to me it sounds like idle circuit problems.
Other things to check:
Pull dist cap, see if rotor shaft wobbles if you push it left, right, away from you, or towards you
Condition of dist cap and rotor
condition of wires
Just for "Giggles"---with a bottle of some sort. With the sorta "traditional similar" 'Elmers Glue Top'. Something you can increase or decrease a "Gas Drip" out of.
Dribble in each barrel, at different rates----while at idle. See if you can "Force an improvement" just by a little extra fuel dripping in.
If it works. Might need carb adjustments. Improved rebuilding. Or maybe a "Parts Store" rebuilt one
Let me know what you find.I'm old school, got 2 "Real Jeeps", w/ carbs. Kinda really what I grew up on!
Might be able to make suggestions, before you go Hog Wild, doin' stuff
