I rebuilt the Q'jet on my 79 it runs fine but on idle I can smell gas out the tail pipe. The manual is very confuseing turn in lo spd till engine drops turn back 1 turn. Can anyone clarify this for me?

But the carb looks tired -- I'm guessing it's been rebuilt at least once because I can see a new gasket. The bolts that hold the carb together have been torqued so tight they've chewed up a little of the metal beneath them. And the shafts do indeed feel "loose" (although I have no frame of reference on this one).
I'm thinking a new Edelbrock Q-Jet could be on my list...
