    My 440 4 Speed Duster. New Holly 800DB. I Will Set It At 800 RPM's Then Take It For A Drive, First Stop Idle Then stalls. Bring It Back Home Get It Back Up Too 800 Rpm Then First Stop Up To 1800RPM, Can Not Get It To Settle Down, Nothing Is Getting Stuck And I Have Greased All Levers. Could This Be Jetting Or Vacume Leak, When It Is At 1800 It Somtimes Comes Back To 800 But It Takes 25-35 Seconds To Come Down. Where Do I Start.

    I had a vacuum leak that made my truck roll at idle. It was simply a loose carb body bolt. Not sure if a loose shaft could leak, and make it roll also?

    That badass Duster shouldn't be idling anyway:yawinkle:

    Sounds like a vacuum leak to me. things to check, distributor vac advance connect to carb "ported Vac", PV valve working properly, double check carb primary and "Most Important" secondary throttle plates are closing. If you have a points distributor check the gapping, twist the rotor to see if it returns freely, (points or electronic).

    I'd disconnect all the vacuum lines, cap off the ports and see if the problem went away.
    If no change a judicious use of propane or starting fluid around the carb and manifold will help find a leak. rwh
