This normally means the idle circuit is too rich and could be wasting fuel once the engine warms up. But you're happy with it, so theoretical guessing on my part is irrelevant. I'm just jealous that you have a TM-40 and I don't.

Dang, 1-1/2" is a bunch. I'm glad you measured it to give others an idea of what to look for.
