[Healeys] Idle dies

idle is up to 1100 RPM
mixture has been leaned and richened,.,,,
we have basically rebuilt or replaced everything except a new distributor.
Pulling the choke cable out a bit, keeps it from dying. (This should
indicate a lean misture, but that has been checked). It idles fine for
awhile, then slowly drops off and dies
