88 YJ Stalls at Stops

I've got an 88 jeep wrangler with 258 engine that was just completely rebuilt a little over a year ago. I've also ditched the carter carb and gone with a weber about 3 months ago, but continue to have the stalling issue. When u first start out u are guaranteed that the motor will stall at the first red light or stop sign u come to. It starts back up on the first turn. I've scratched my head till I've got no more hair trying to fix this annoying little gremlin. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Mine has the same problem, people have told me it could be a vacuum leak.

First, check torque on hold down bolts and any adaptors you had to use to put that carb on the manifold.

Next check torque on the intake manifold.

I didn't do the install of the carb so what is the correct torque on the adapters and intake manifold.

Carbed models don't have an Idle Air Controller, do they?

Edit: sarcasm didn't really come across.

I had good luck finding vacuum leaks with a can of electrical cleaner. With the engine running I sprayed the base of the carb and where the intake bolts to the head. The RPM will slowly increase if there is a leak. I found two manifold leaks and one at the base of the carb like this.

The OEM BBD does kinda/sorta have an idle controller, the computer uses the sol-vac for that in some circumstances.
