Ok....First of all, when you swapped out the card, was the alternator wiring messed with at all ?? Are you getting 14.5 volts at the battery when at idle ?? Turn up the idle so it stays running, then you can adjust your mixtures. You might be able to get that junkyard carb to work for you. Also check ALL your vacuum lines. Make sure your "ported" and "manifold" vacuums are correctly routed. Let me know
