Slow but rough

Well float level was OK so all back together fired it up connected a tachometer and managed to get an idle of about 750-850 rpm but it was a bit uneven. So after a few laps we managed to get it into 3rd and even 4th a couple of times so it is running better and resisted the urge to stall but still lumpy low down. Thing is didn't really find anything... Old petrol?

Seems like you're getting there, some fine tuning and tinkering are the joys of carb cars, every box ticked gets you that bit closer,,

Have you re-checked the plugs after all this messing with the carb?  A new set is easily wasted and then replacing them can do wonders....Also if not running clean in hich rev ignition leads/cap/coils are suspect...
Has a compression test been done?

I have had running problems from the ignition module on the distributor. I never really established what was going on but running a wire from the mounting point to a good earth helped.
