Although it starts easily and will rev with no problem, if idle speed is anything below 1300 the engine dies. Cam timing has been checked and is right on and so is ignition timing. A total of six different carburetors have been tried all with the same result. The only thing that has not been replaced is the distributor. The points plate is in good shape. Is it possible that it could be a distributor problem? Is it possible that the springs although they look good are in fact week and the thing goes into a death spiral? Any suggestions would be very welcome.
