will not idle can play with throttle and keep running. no pluged jets or holes in carbs. all cleaned out good. will run with choke on or you can cover the air intake and it will idle. seems to have bad vacuum leak but can not find

I had a set of carbs that would behave this way as well. I could not get much vacuum at idle and the carb would not idle properly. From the reading I did, it seems that you could have problems with your air cut-off valves, as this will affect your vacuum and the ability to idle properly.
