problem with 1984 F150

ok so i have a 1984 Ford F150 with a 351 V8 and a 4 speed on the floor........it has sat for about 10 years and i bought it in March and have drove it some since...........not far from home.......my truck just recently started missing and if you are going anywhere it feels like it isnt getting enough gas to it......it cuts out and you have to go to neutral or push the clutch in and rev it then gear down..........then it does it again so you are constantly repeating this........how do i fix it

Re: problem with 1984 F150

There are a couple of short answers that come to mind:
1) Take it to a pro. Abandoning a vehicle can do more damage than wrecking it, and carbs are VERY delicate, so it's probably going to take a LOT of skill & patience to get it right.
2) Buy a reman carb, slap it on, & HOPE they've set it up perfectly for your truck (which isn't likely). But you'll probably still end up letting a pro finish the job.
3) Sell it to someone who can handle fixing it & buy an EFI. They're MUCH easier to maintain, get better mileage, & are more reliable.

The long answer is: buy the oldest Haynes manual you can get, read it, buy some tools, & start learning. But it'll probably take several months & cost more than double any of the above options.
