GanoMan, Based on some of your posts in a new discussion that you started, it seems like you figured out your fuel delivery issue from this discussion (350 dies when in drive).

When you have a moment, can you post the resolution (cause + fix) on what solved your fuel issue so your engine ran better while driving.

I'm very curious on what you did to resolve your issue.
Thanks!

Yes. Sorry for lack of response. So I ended up changing a section of crimped fuel line. New filter and most importantly I dialed my carburetor floats in.

I was having an issue where gas was dropping in the fuel line. As if there was a tiny tiny air leak and it wasn't staying in the lines.

I was having to prime the brand new carb if it sat longer than 3 days. And multiple times when I drove it around, the car died. I always just need to add fuel and then off I go.

I also have a fuel line hose running from the pump to the chrome arb line. So I will be changing that as well.

It all seems fine as of now. I will be changing the entire fuel system with new this winter. It seems worth it to me.

I still have an issue with my throttle return spring though. It doesn't pull back enough so the rpms are just a touch to high. I am going to be purchasing a bracket to relocate the spring.

I have learned so much on this thread I will probably be coming back to ask questions. Thank you all so much.
