So, hubby volunteered to look at the Eagle tonight.  We went out and fired it up and while it was idling rough he opened the idle mixture screws he said not even 1/4 turn and the idle smoothed right out and now its idling like a top in drive with the brake on.  Previously I had the idle mixture screws opened only 3/4 turn on one and about 5/8 turn on the other.  Hopefully it continues running like this, but I'll see over the next few weeks.

Well, the Eagle went into storage for the summer yesterday.  :'(

I told hubby I wanted my Corvette going and we can't afford to have both cars licensed at the same time so I won't be driving my Eagle again until fall.  I'm having seperation anxiety already.  I only got to put about 10 city miles on it since the carb changes/adjustments but it did run beautifully - wish I could have given it more of a testing than that, but what are you going to do?  I took it to a car club's A&W cruise night to show it off and although the club members mostly ignored me (perhaps they felt I was intruding) the people that did look at it liked it a lot.  Ward figured it appealed to women in particular.  I was hoping to take it to an open show and shine on June 22nd, but maybe I can convince hubby to pull it out of storage and put a one day permit on it for that.
