amc concord: hi chris, i just got my new carb and put it on

This answer was rated:

hi chris, i just got my new carb and put it on . starts up great , idles a little rougher than before but pretty good overall. But it coughs and wants to die upon acceleration. would you say i got a defective carb or is there something else i might check for about the way i installed it? (common mistakes)
To be honest with you, I think you got a defective carb. I have had instances where it took me up to 3 tries before I got a good one. Take that one back and try another carb.
