OK I HAD A NEW HOLLY 4 BARRAL PUT IN A FEW MONTHS A GO. WHEN I START THIS VAN IT RUNS GREAT, HOW EVER WHEN I PUT IT IN DRIVE AND SIT AT AN IDLE THE ENGINE WILL HAVE A SLIGHT MISS AND IT WILL LULL AND WILL EVEN STALL OUT. I PUT IT IN PARK AND IT SOUNDS GREAT BUT STILL HAS A EVER SO SLIGHT MISS. WHEN I DRIVE IT IT RUNS GREAT, LOTS OF POWER. BUT STOPPING AT LIGHTS I HAVE TO TWO PEDDLE IT.
ALSO IN MY DASH MY BATT LIGHT BLINKS. SOME TIMES IT WONT. BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT BLINKS. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I'M COMING UP FOR NEW TAGS AND NEED THIS TO GO THROUGH. AND WHATS YOUR TAKE ON THE BLINKING BATT LIGHT
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

The blinking battery light is from the belt not being tight enough or the vehicle trying to stall out. As far as the miss is, it may be a vacuum leak. Spray choke cleaer around the bottom of the carb and if the idle goes up or down, you probably have a leak. Also check your breaker plate in the distributor as they used to wear out and give a symptom similar to this.
