    Well, she starts runs till warm.....then dies ?!? Have to give it half throttle to keep running. Take my foot off accelerator, and dies ?
    how do you check if idle solenoid is working ? Took it out, put power to it, it clicks but do not see anything. Any help here would be great

    I see you just went through the carb, I'm wondering if the adjustments have been put back to the baseline settings? My truck would do the same before. I think people start adjusting the carbs as they get older to keep them running then when the inevitable carb rebuild happens they need to be turned back.

    Just a theory....Good Luck

    My truck does funky stuff like that with the weather change in my area. Forever adjusting my carb.

    Well turns out part of the problem was my distributor.... Had the white turn knob under a clear cap. Was all the way unscrewed ?!? I can idle at about 1200 rpm now....but not power ? Next is replacing all vacuum lines I guess
