Default carb rebuild

After having rebuilt my carb, my bird ran the best since I owned
it. No stalling ,hesitation for about the first 100 miles. Now
every once in awhile the car will shudder and shake. If I pull over
and put it in park the engine smooths out and then will run great
again. Problem is intermittent, so it's very disturbing. Any
ideas on this?

Default RE: carb rebuild

You do not state if this happens at idle, constant speed or acceleration.

You may need to adjust the float levels.

Possibilities:

Float level in primaries too low.

Clogged fuel filter.

Fuel pump is failing.
