Unhappy power drain

Hi, I just got done putting a weber 32/36 with eletric choke on my sammy. I noticed it runs fine during the day, but when I turn on the headlights it tries to kill the engine. It did not do this before the carb change, is it becaue the new carb has a electric choke sucking down extra power, what can I do to fix this, the alternator is new, the engine only has 600miles on it and I run 91 octane in it. ( Its 10.1 flat head pistons with mid to high range cam and new clutch) Any help would be good thanks.

Are you talking about the idle dropping when you turn on the headlights?

With the factory carb the idle is automatically bumped up whenever there is an energy draw. If it is the idle you are talking about, you just need to bump up the idle a bit so the headlights pull it down to the idle you are after.

Some tips on setting up a Weber;

my idle is sitting at a 100rpm right now, I guess I could bump it up a little.

You are about 400 rpm slow...
normal is 500-600.
