  12. So far not fun at all cant get it to stay running... Not sure what the issue is cant keep the car running for more then a day seemed like the carb gums up at first I tore it apart cleaned it out an it ran fine for a day again an now carb is clean an car won't stay running it will idle a little choppy cold but if I touch the throttle its bogs out or if I put it in gear it will die out... Any thoughts?
     
  13. I think it is the trailer hitch....






    How old is the gas in it? If it has sat for any period of time it may be best to dump it all out and flush the lines. Pour in some new gas and see if that does anything.
     
  14. Is your idle too low? I am not much of a carb guy, but I just helped my neighbor out with this exact issue. The car would first idle low in neutral, then when he put it in gear, it would stall out. Raised the idle some, and the issue stopped. Then it started when he would turn his wheel, without giving it gas, and the car would stall. I adjusted the idle once again, and it worked like a charm. Its been over 2 weeks and his car hasn't stalled once.

    Also, how are your plugs, wires, coil, distributor/distributor rotor and fuel pressure?
     
  15. Fuel is fresh 89oct idle is fine.. It will idle but if you touch throttle is bogs/starves out in gunna change fuel pump an hope for the best. It did run good when it ran
