On a freshly restored tri-power I had a a similar problem after opening the outboard carburetors.

I had to add a heavier duty torsion spring (from a 4bbl) on the rear carb so that the outboard carburetor butterflies would close completely. You need sufficient spring pressure to return all the butterflies to idle.

Mike told me I can tweak the lighter duty spring to get some more strength out of it too.
