With that done you should be able to set a smooth idle IF you have the carbs correctly syncronized.

Do you have the factory air box or an aftermarket plate tying the two card together with a support rod to the motor mount? That is absolutely necessary to maintain syncronization.
The engine is set up with trumpets and it does have a metal plate holding both carbs together supported with motor mounts. I have removed the trumpets until i get the carbs in sync.

Having the engine working very rough at idle, it is very hard to get a good reading with the Synchrometer,

I will get the timing on the "M" @ 4000 rpm this weekend.
