If you feather the throttle are you able to keep it running?

Just trying to figure out if it's a carb problem.

Any difference whether it's cold or warm engine?

Does it lurch when you put it in gear?

Sound like an air idle mixture problem to me.

Does it have Power Brakes? And if so maybe a vacume leak at the booster. Is your foot is on the brake when it stalls?
