1963 Ford Galaxie 500 RPMs Rolling

Asked by Caleb Jun 05, 2015 at 02:26 AM about the 1963 Ford Galaxie

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 with a 289
engine and 26,000 miles from my
grandfather's estate and I have been
experiencing the RPMs rolling up and down.
I had it fixed for a little over 1 day after I
used sea foam to try cleaning out any built
up carbon, and the car ran like a dream.
What can I do to fix this problem
permanently? The plugs have been
replaced, the carb was rebuilt and I took it
off and had it cleaned...
