Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
Looks like all you need to do is clean and adjust your carb ,
If you are 100% sure you don't have any vacuum leaks then its with the carbs idle system .
I take it you have the 32/36 weber .

Here is a link on how to set up and adjust your carb.

You may have just as dirty idle jet .
