i got it running but it wont idle and you cant drive it it sounds ok when running at a higher rpm but under load it wont go.
The only thing i can think of is its a vacume leak.their are so many line i never saw so many on a vehicle.and trying to look at the diag in the manual is imposible.can i get rid of any or what.should i consider a diffrent carb so i can remove some of the lines?/??//

Is your check engine light on? Does it idle like crap and run like crap under load? How many miles on the motor?

To me it sounds like the problems most of use have had with the 4.2 at some time are another, IF your laws allow and it will still past inspection DO the Nutter-Bypass, mine runs Very good now!
