In a previous post you mentioned (para-phasing) "to make sure the vacumn operated secondaries are opening."

How is this done on a 4100?

Well, you have to do several things. First, with the carb upside down, you must make certain that the linkage is all free and that you have full secondary opening. Autolites are notorious for having only 3/4 to 7/8 secondary throttle. You bend the linkage to fix it. Then you have to make certain that the secondary diaphram is in good shape and not perforated. Next make sure that the spring is not too stiff.
The rest depends on if you have a stick or automatic trans.
