'66 T-Bird 390 secondary venturis not opening

Folks,

I'm new to Fords, and have a '66 T-Bird with a stock 390. It's sat for twenty years, and I got it running three days ago.

The secondary carb venturis are not opening; I think they're vacuum.

Ideas?

Thanks,


David

The problem turned out to be that the secondary throttle shaft was seized. I worked it loose, and everything is working now.
