Start the truck and allow it to idle to get it warm. Will the engine race while in neutral (without a load) or will it cut out with increased RPM in neutral?

Then your problem is probably fuel and it's delivery. If the engine operates normally without a load (tranny and the weight of the vehicle) then check the fuel system for filth and the air cleaner. If the vehicle is carburated, that would be the first place I would check. Sounds like the carb is flooding out.

Has anyone been adjusting the mixture if carburated? If so the engine could be running to rich, which would cause the problem.
