1974 Chevy c20 carb

Asked by Jun 25, 2016 at 12:04 PM about the 1974 Chevrolet C/K 20

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck will start right up, go
about 50 yards and quit. I can let it
set for a couple minutes and it will
run fine. Or sometimes I have to
loosen gas line to carb, let pressure
off before it will start.
