I really don't know much about the state of your car, so here's a 
"shot in the dark" comment.  What's the condition of the exhaust 
system?  RPM is pretty much proportional to flow of air into the 
engine and exhaust out of the engine, right?  I could see how a 
restricted exhaust could limit RPM.  Any mice move into the muffler 
while it was in storage?  Of course, could be a hundred other things 
too.  Just thought I'd toss this idea out there.  As for carbs, Joe 
Curto is the first guy I think of for SU carbs.  He really seems to 
know what he's doing.
