Everytime Grammys CJ wouldn't idle down with the stepper pins oscillating around 1/8 shoulder showing.

It was the intake manifold leaking vacuum.

Yes, the choke is working well. I wish I could get this video uploaded, it shows it from cold to warm.

If you don't have the felpro two piece gasket set for the manifolds and your looking for something to do just replace it.

Members will argue against this but I never had luck keeping those dam bolts tight until I got the two piece gasket set. Which put both manifold flanges at a even height. And I went junking and got all the cup washers I could find.

The lean best idle is what it says. Tuning for the highest vacuum is generally the richer way to adjust idle mixture.

I used brake cleaner and sprayed the head where the manifold gaskets are. It all but stalled it when I found it.

It may be a timing issue also... see my new thread on what I found on my timing adventure

That's funny that you said it almost stalled using brake cleaner, I was expecting it to idle up when I sprayed it directly into the air cleaner as a test. But it just started running rough. So, I stopped for the day and was going to get some starting fluid tomorrow.

How much throttle shaft play do you have?

After I set the idle mixture screws, I decided to watch the main discharge nozzles to see how the FA mixture was coming out of them. I have been wondering what affect (or is it 'effect') the wrong size metering rods, and the jet I resized, was having. What I saw was odd or may be not. At about 1500 rpm the inboard nozzle/venturi had a good bit of fuel coming out of it but the outboard nozzle/venturi had very little, in comparison. At about 2000-2500 they both seem to be flowing at the same rate. I wonder if there is less flow on the outboard nozzle/venturi because its location is further out on the manifold or ??????

Another problem maybe but do both throttle plates open evenly?
Tough to measure it once it's mounted but maybe the throttle shaft is a little bent.

I didn't measure it while rebuilding it. The play was noticeable but I wasn't setup to measure it.

I did give the bottom plate a good visual inspection but I wasn't setup to measure it. It looked ok visually but that ain't worth much.

Just see how much up and down play it has. Over 1/16 is in the bad zone.

Ok, will do. I wish I would have been able to measure it, in reality, if I could have left he Jeep down longer I would have installed bushings even if there was no slop.
