does it have a two barrel carb or a 4 barrel, cause i know i had an old dodge truck with a 2 barrel carb and when ever i took a hard left it would die and then sputter back to life once i was back striaght

it has the the stock two barrel and the only thing i did to it was change out the float on it, and mine just dies doesnt even try to sputter back to life

did it just start happening or has it happend for the life of the vehicle? but the fact that its a 2 barrel is more than likely the issue

life of the vehicle i dont know i bought it used but as far as once i got it running yes it has always done this

then yea thats your issue the fuel gets pulled away from the jets when you take a left turn, easiest fix 4 barrel carb
