Could be a bad vacuum modulator or it could just not be hooked up at all.

the cable adjustment for trans is very important it must be adjusted properly . if using same carb you just need to adjust .

you put a 305 in it,what was the original engine.

i believe this post is spot on. i did a 305 to a 400 swap in my old camaro. cable needed adjusted. btw if you dont stop driving the car and get it done asap your tranny will need a rebuild.

would this be a fuel injected car & not a carb??
