ENGINE STALLS

1981 Triumph Vitesse

Engine Performance problem
1981 Triumph Vitesse V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 44000 miles

I have a TR 8 with a edelbrock 500 carburator. After driving for a while in traffic and the engine is warmed up running at 190 on a very accurate gague. Sometimes the engine will stall when I put the clutch in and slow down using the brakes. The only way I can get started up again is to hold the gas peddle to the floor and crak the engine. It starts and might not stall for a while but then it will all of a sudden do it again.
