I like Herm for the early 5 stuff such as overdrives but for tranny, T-case and axles, in my humble opinion R&P is second to none. Fair prices and a ton of knowledge in their crew:thumb:

Hey, this is a pretty interesting thread! I actually like the truck bed but agree the design/quality leave something to be desired.

I would start with a carb rebuild. That is the most common cause of running rich. It may just need a cleaning, like the needle jet is sticking partially open. That would cause problems 1 and 2. ...
