Sometimes vacuum gauges aren't a good indicator of an intake leak. They are fine for massive leaks.

Try slowly closing the choke plate with your finger to see how it affects the engine. If it starts running better there is a problem.

If it isn't a silly question, is there a Bakelite spacer under the carb? If it is in contact with the manifold that will be hot enough to boil out the carb.

I can't imagine an air filter would be a cause of stalling, unless it is totally blocked with filth, and you would notice that. I forgot to mention, on my car I still have the original oil bath air cleaner, with used auto trans fluid. It worked 70 years ago, it still does.

It simply does not have a big enough surface area to allow air to get in. Blocked or not, it is going to cause restriction problems exactly as was shown and the fact that it runs differently when removed is a perfect illustration of the problem. If you do all your fuel and air mixture settings with the cleaner off, then notice a significant change putting in on afterward, clearly it is the problem! It’s not just its diameter but also its height which in itself of would cause problems.

thank you all for the responses. The aftermarket air cleaner I;m using is a simple paper air filter 4" x 2" stacked two high. not very big.


A double stacked air cleaner would seem to provide enough filtering surface and not restrict air flow.
