Man why do people insist on messing things up? So now you have to check and make sure the fuel delivery is correct for the carb you have on it, then check the carb itself making sure the accelerator pump is operating as it should, if not then it will have to be overhauled and make sure the over kit contains the new material for this garbage they call fuel today, and I suppose that the ignitions system has also be altered.

I really havent noticed anything else being altered it was running fine but needed a tune up so i did that and id say right around 1,000 miles it started acting up its a good truck just trying to fuggure out what all could be causing it to hessitate when accelrated
