I'm claiming victory over my weak idle issues! 

Per tmea's advice clearing the heat risers was the way to go... and threw on some new silicone boots too.

Great news guys.
I have always wondered if the correct top gasket on carburetors is the correct one as You do see where there is a hole in the bottom and You are not sure whether the hole or more should be covered over...
and as usually now a carburetor gasket kit contains lots of different gaskets..
