I have a 1961 Chevy " Apache" Fleetside Pickup with a 283 V8, manual choke, that won't idle even after purchasing and installing a new Carburetor. Engine runs at high RPM's and compression test on first plug shows 160 instead of the manufacturer's recommended 140. Didn't check other plugs for compression. Take foot off accelerator and the engine sputters and dies.
What is wrong?
