rebuilt carb. pokin hole in diafram

Hey guys,
Been quite a while since I've posted, I've been busy with school and money's been short.
My grandpa and I rebuilt the 1BBl carb for my 64 f-100 (223 engine) and it sounds really good when she's idelin but when I push the gas pedal i get a pin hole in the diafram. what did we do wrong???? Its drivin me nuts and I really want to drive my truck.
I though about just buying a new carb but I can't find one I can afford and I have't been able to find a place I can just buy the diafram.
Any ideas whats going on???

Thanks
Matt

I doubt you did anything wrong. Probably just old age. Not sure if it's possible to fix a carburetor diaphragm. A thin coating of RTV might work if you can find one that's resistant to gasoline......dunno if there is such an animal.
