The carb is sitting on the shelf, I replaced it with an Edelbrock to confirm that the Autolite was the source of all the problems related to the richness problems:
* No start when warm/hot
* Surging at cruise
* Massive amounts of soot (more like tar shooting out the tail pipes)
* Unsteady idle
Now I would like to get this Autolite back on my car, but I'm not very familiar with these.
Where are the adjustments?
What typically goes wrong?
