WOULD IT DRIVE SORTA OK AT LOWER SPEEDS?

IS YOUR FUEL FILTER ONE OF THEM LITTLE BITTY ONES AT THE CARB?

IF IT AIN'T BEEN CHANGED IN A WHILE, DO IT. EVEN IF THIS AIN'T YOUR PROBLEM, A LITTLE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE WON'T HURT NOTHIN'!

THIS WAS THE PROBLEM WITH Y DAD'S '76 F-150 W/ 351 WINDSOR

THE COUGH YOU MENTIONED DOES "SORTA" SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUETO VERIFY THIS, BEFORE YOU PUT THE FILTER ON, PUT 2 SPOONFULS OF GAS IN THE CARB AND SEE IT IT REALLY WANTS TO RUN.A LITTLE ANYWAY

IF IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NO SPITS/ COUGHS/ SPUTTERS. JUST "DRY" OVER AND OVERS

WE WILL START CHECKING IGNITION POSSIBILITIES

GOT VOLTMETER?
