Unscrew the top off your carbs and see if they need oil in them. It may be more complicated than adjusting.

If you dont see oil when you unscrew the top it needs some. It will only take about a shot glass to fill up,or less. In Alaska use a very thin oil, 20wt.

Neat car. Its time to buy a Haynes Manual or similar.

Also a good time to remove the carbs for a good cleaning and rebuild.

Sometimes you can get too much fuel pressure and fuel will bubble up and out of the SU, into the cylinder...causing fowling. What kind of fuel pump are you running?
