hi maybe someone can help me troubleshoot... i have a 73 I recently picked up. its an automatic, also looks like someone installed a single carb on it at some point in it's life. It idles well, nice and smooth. When I took for a short drive at one point I began to press the accelerator and the car would stall out or die. Sounds like the engine is being choked out. then when i lift my foot it keeps idling if i don't stall it out completely. I tuned up the essentials (checked the distributor, adjusted the valves), but no change in how the car runs. Leads me to be believe its the carb? Can anyone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot?
