Help with camira

I have a 1983 JB Camira, only picked it up last week. It hasn't been started for about 12-18 months, It started first kick and runs fine if you hold the accelerator on or pump it but it will not idle, once the rev's die down a bit it dies like its running out of fuel. I have stripped down the carbie and cleaned it and replaced the gaskets, checked the fuel line, replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, spark plugs and leads, distributer cap and battery, I've check the spark at the plugs and the coil. Does any body have any ideas I can try other then getting rid of the Camira.

Thanks

Sounds like air is leaking into the intake manifold somewhere. Perhaps the brake booster diaphragm is perforated and is letting air through? After you turn the engine off, pull the plastic valve out of the rubber grommet where it goes into the booster and see if it makes some big sucking noise as you do it. Should hold vacuum for quite a while if it is ok.

Is the Anti Dieseling Solenoid the idle solenoid if so yes it clicks on and off with the ignition. I will try the back vacuum

This might be obvious but did you put fresh fuel in the tank? If it's been sitting around for a while the fuel in the tank goes stale and the engine won't run real well.

Yes I have put fresh fuel in. After reading the previous post about sucking air in I have had a better look and found on the left hand side of the intake manifold
there is a pipe on the side which looks like it should have a hose on it. I have blocked the pipe and tried it and it runs fine, now I just need to find the hose and where it goes to and I right. Also the anti tamper plugs are missing from the idle mixture screw and the idle jet, without a dwell angle metre what is the best way of checking these settings.

Thanks
