If timing, points and valve clearances are set correctly, try resetting the carb from scratch as per any manual. A common 'warm running' problem is that the throttle control screw (the small screw on the end of the throttle arm) is set incorrectly so that the carb never drops down onto the idle circuit (controlled by the big screw on the left hand side) when warm.
