Stalls at idle, what should the vacuum be? This is a carburetted 4.0.

Check for vacuum leaks. It should be around 17. Also, there is an idle solenoid on the side of the carb. Make sure it is working. The throttle will rest against it to maintain a set idle.

JUST REMEMBER WE'RE NOT TRYING TO TACH IT OUT AND BLOW THE ENGINE!

GOOD LUCK!
