S SPUTTERING

1973 International Truck

Engine Mechanical problem
1973 International Truck s V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 62,435 miles

when I am driving my 1210 international truck and give it gas it starts to sputter like it isnt getting fuel if I let up on the gas it will kinda go away I have changed both fuel filters and sprayed carb cleaner on my edelbroc 4 barrel carb would it be the float in the carb or a fuel pump issue? It sometimes will die when I start it befor I get goin down the road like if I start it and go to the first stop sign then it might just die. I have the 392 v8

If it happens when the truck is cold it may be the choke not being closed enough and needing to be adjusted. If it is warm and cold then it could be the float level is to low and needs to bechecked. BUT, have a pro look at this because it could be a accelerator pump problem among other things.
