Ms Jensen had the worst worn carbs in history, so vacuum leaks were abundant. Give the throttle axles a wiggle, there should be no radial movement of the axles. Spray a bit of aerosol engine starter (don't know any brand names nor the proper term for it in English, in Norway it is known as "start gas") around the axles, if the engine picks up you have a vacuum leak. If you do - find a better set of carbs or go Dell'Orto.

If you are really lucky, the throttle stop is just turned half a turn too far in, adjust it to give correct idle speed when the engine is properly warmed up.
