PS what engine and what carburettor ( should be a 2 barrel stromberg0. I think some of these like the HQ V8's also had the one way only mixture screw for air pollution control that allowed you to screw it in for a leaner mixture but not out for a richer mixture. The screw essentially cut its own thread when you screwed it in and leaked or fell out when you tried to unscrew it.

If you are not going to do it yourself the cheapest way would be to get a exchange carburettor fitted by a specialist carburettor place.
