Hi - 65 Falcon with 302 (B303 hyd roller - 750 dp) wont hold an idle.

car needs to be held at 3000 rpm to keep running. Any Ideas?

vacuum leak? Bad carb?

Car has a Mallory dzzy & Crane ign box.

Thanks in advance

I agree with Hottarod - additionally a bad float/needle and seat could be flooding the engine.

Where are the idle needles at? Count turns in to lightly seated. I usually start at 1.5 turns out.

What is timing set to?

Thanks everyone. I`ll start with the carb as it sat for many, many years.

*what is the consensus on the B303 hyd roller? good street stick?

This is actually the 1st car I ever owned - bought it in 87 then sold it in 88.... my friend just bought it today from the guy I sold it too in 88.... cool to be playing with my 1st car again! Havent seen it in 25 yrs.....
