I just had replaced all gaskets in my 72, and bought a larger radiator with a 72 degree thermostat and a new weber 32/36 carb only problem is that car will start when you first start it but the idle is really weak and eventually after about 3 to 4 minutes of idling the car will die unless you give it a bit more gas, anyone have any ideas on what it could be? my dad was suggesting to adjust the carb jets, I am not really buying that, its causing that issue anyone have ideas or ran into the same problem. And what is is the normal idling rpm for a 2002 mine seems to be idling a between ~1300 to ~1800 rpm not sure if that is what it should be

Total newb question after doing some research I figured out I was idling at 700 rpm and thus causing the alternator(dynamo)not to kick in (kicks in at 1,000-1,200 rpm) needed to readjust idle jet to 2.5 turns to the right now car is idling at 1,200-1,300 rpm no more red light on dash and idling a lot stronger with less rattle and shaking coming from engine bay
