I have a 318 with an P218 in it. It runs great and doesn't use any oil. My issue is that I am not able to adjust the idle speed down to where the manual says it should be. It is very happy idling along at 1700 RPMs. The screw on the front of the carb does not effect the idle speed or even cause the engine to change at idle. I have the service manual and have followed the procedure but can't seem to get the idle down. I have backed off the idle speed screw on the throttle cable so that isn't stopping it. I know this seems petty since it runs just fine but now it is just annoying.
