I took my 02 for a quick spin! It was cold so the motor was running at 2k. I get home and now the motor is wark but it is still idling at 2k. I find the throttle linkage was stuck, so I losend it and now it wont Idle anywhere below 2,000 rpm. Ive played with the idle speed screw, and the choke is not engaged. What is up here do I have a Vacume leak? Or what. I have brand new fuel filters I can see into, they are clear.

Thanks

i have a single round barrel solex carb. ( 37-40 ), and it did the same thing. what i did was open up the carb, cleaned air, and fuel mixture needles. and check the float inside the fuel recip. sometimes gets stuck.! after doing this, give it some gas, and check ive the revs come down.

clean 'em thoroughly. Your engine is fed gas thru the idle jets up to about 2000-2500 rpm before the main jets come into play, so it sound like the idle jets aren't cooperating.

Happy hunting
