Sounds a large vacuum leak at the brake booster

Hey CamaroCollector, Sorry I took so long to reply. I disconnected the vacuum line from the booster and plugged it with a chapstik cap and she runs like a champ. Of course the brakes don't work so very good ,but that's an easy fix. Thanks for the insight. gvaughn54
