Does the flat spot get better if you add a little choke?

Now you mention it it does seem to be better with the choke out.

However if it was rolling roaded before the rebuild then yes, it will need to be tuned again. It won't be the same after being rebuilt.

Something must be amiss with the timing, I can't believe you got the marks out by 20 degrees! But what that might be I can't guess at just now, anything else that's a little odd?

The only other weird thing recently, the car was not gotting up to temperature it was sitting just at the top off the blue section of the temp gauge rather than at the line in the middle. I instantly thought cold weather summer thermostat, change the thermostat, only to discover the new one i bought was exactly the same. I swapped them anyway and sure enough up to temp obviously a dodgy thermostat. Could this have caused any damage as i was running the car for a few weeks before i changed it?

I'm with dan on this one, i rekon a leak. I have had a couple of carbs crack across the butterly. Remove and check surfaces, replace gasket and use abit of blue gasket paste.
