pull choke off car stalls, any ideas?

just bought a used edelbrock performer carberator, put it on my 302, seems to run fine til i back the choke off, even a little bit the engine stalls. Can't figure out why, thought it may of been a vacumn leak but couldnt find it, and timings all good, any suggestions? thanks sean

Is This In A Autimatic Car Or Manuel Trans Car? It Could Be Low Trans Fluid Or The Carb Needs Rebuilt.

Every time I've had this happen [dozens to hundreds] it is either a vac leak,usually at the carb base, or dirt in the carb.

If the carb it used I'd pull the lid and see what's what, if you're new to Edel/Carter remember you pull the metering rods first carefully, then the whole top comes off. The boosters all come out so they are easier to clean.
