Dry! That's amazing! How would you prevent the air from leaking? I tested with a carb spray and not surprisingly, the idling speed increased as I did, which proves that there is some leakage. While driving, whenever I depress the clutch the RPM drops very low and some times dies. I adjusted the idle speed screw and it is all the way in, and it is still doing that. My only explanation is that vacuum leakage.
