Ok, I’m back with the rest of the story. I took my carb off and broke it down, didn’t see any tell tale issues, but it needed cleaning overall. I Cleaned everything, blew out all the jets and went looking for a kit. That’s when I discovered my carb wasn’t a genuine Rochchester, it was an aftermarket clone and probably put on years ago while it was still my dad’s truck and I was off somewhere serving in the AF. So, knowing that, I looked into finding a remanufactured genuine Rochester B 1bbl just to be true to the rest of my build and get rid of the clone. So the reman Rochester came in yesterday and I installed it today. After a few adjustments, she purrs like a kitten drives and accelerates good AND doesn’t die at stop signs and red lights. So it was something in the carb. Now, I don’t know if they will accept my clone as a core exchange. If not I’ll go ahead and rebuild it and keep it around. But that’s an issue for tomorrow. Appreciate all the help and advice.
I guess Carl was right “ it’s never the carburetor....until it’s the carburetor”. The new carburetor seems to have done the trick. Thanks again!
