Just wanted to thank everyone for all the great advice, and let you know what
actually worked.  Three things;  First I used a fire hose on the carb.  No I
carefully poured (the spray bottle would have been better) water a few drops at
a time down the barrels.  Then I lowered the idle speed (it was set pretty
high).  And finally, I leaned the mixture out and found the "sweet spot."  Took
her for a relatively long drive today and when it came time to shut down, not
even the slightest dieseling.


oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
