Thank you, Howard. I needed to confirm that. I'm going to rotate the shaft more CCW and reset it so it might take longer to warm up, but send less hot exhaust upwards toward the carb when the engine is at operating temperature.

I have just rebuild carb coming tomorrow from Daytona, but unless the heat control vale is adjusted, I'll have the same problem I'm sure.

As mentioned, the carb has a gasket, a spacer, and another gasket under it. Ross Miller added a heat shield alongside the manifold. Still, it percolated last night.
