Re: truck will not run right

Could be as simple as condenser in dissy/ points??
Start it and rev with timing light, check that its advancing?
Does it seem to run better when advanced ??
What condition are plugs, leads, cap ??
Check for inlet leaks and all vacuum hoses connected...
Carb clean and getting fuel etc ??

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
