Bad Carb

My 64 has always started hard when cold. ran real rough for the first few mins. then ran smoother but seemd to run real rich (smokey). I decided to rebuild the carb. NOW it is even harder to start, and will not idle. Very smokey (rich). When I step it up to the secondary it runs fine. Anyone have any ideas on what to do? Like I said, it seems to involve the primary circuit mainly

Re: Bad Carb

New Symptom:
Primary Bowl Slowly drains almost dry when car sets (approx 5-10 mins). Seems to be draining thru main jet/s. Looks like level drops below power valve opening.
