DIES WHEN PUT IN GEAR

1977 Dodge Ram • 150,000 miles

1977 dodge w150, 318, 60,000 on engine. Dies when put in gear. Remand 2 barrel. I filled the tank for the first time and put some thick additive in erg. Oil. New battery and it is set to specs. For smog.

Check to see if there is good fuel pressure and flow. It should have about a half pint per 30 seconds. Pressure should be 4.5-6 lb range. Check timing

Thank You, it does act as though the engine is not turning enough to pump at lower rpm.
