yes the idle does go back to normal if i tap the pedal. I actually only have one return spring on the carb, I will add the second tonight. never had an issue with the one on it but 2 is safer.
I just wanted to get your thoughts on the idle not coming down between shifts, being related to or not related to the clutch cable adjustment.

any experiences anyone?
i will add the return spring and test drive the car tonight.
thanks again
