Hey guys.
was wondering if you guys could help me out? I replaced the alternator in my car and now the car idles at around 1500-2000rpm.
I tried with the carb on the throttle screw backed out, nothing changed idles the same so was wondering if you guys had any ideas? My next guess is maybe timing? I'd love to hear what you guys have to say on any tips of what it might be. Thanks
