Stock, as in you opened up the intake and exhaust, but did not re-jet?

 

You are now extremely lean, and should re-jet.

 

Have you ever properly adjusted your fuel screw?

Why is your fuel screw at 2.75 turns out?

This is way too much.

You should be at 1.5

If you cannot obtain highest idle at approx 1.5 turns, you slide is too high: turn down the idle and try again.....or you have an air leak at the hot start or header or....

could the big o-ring on the slide cause a problem,and how would you check for air leak at the hot start ?

There is a soft-seal on the slide plate, but that would not be an issue here. That usually shows up under acceleration as a lean condition.

The hot start has a plastic nut to hold the plunger cable in place. They brake and/or crack when you turn the carb sideways to get at the float bowl.

You should at least check the nut, pull the plunger, and inspect both for a good seal. And the fuel screw oring while you are at it.
