Car guys, any ideas ?? - My 72 keeps stalling like it starving for gas and dies. When it does I turn it over and over and it won't start. BUT when I open hood and hit it full throttle by hand 2 times it fixes it. But then it does it again a mile or so later. I Blew air today before all this through the fuel line to clear it because I know I need a fuel strainer in tank. I did flush tank 2 yrs ago. I also put in a new fuel pump a month ago.

UPDATE, last night i went out there at 10pm to take a quick look, When I hit the throttle it puts the fast idle cam on the wrong side of the adjusting screw holding the top carp flaps closed. I'm going to mess with it report back.

I did some carb adjustments, in the process I notice the new mech fuel pump I put on 2 months ago is leaking off and on??, I wonder if it set on a shelve and dried out over the yrs.
