Have you tried to set curb idle speed? Have you tried adjusting the air fuel mixture? Does this vehicle have points and condenser?

Setting carb idle speed necessary? Since truck has been running good for past years. Could it be that truck has old fuel in it since I havnt pored any in a while?

How old is the fuel in the tank? Have you checked for vacuum leaks?
