sounds way too rich when putting throttle into it. out of gear does it bog too when putting throttle into it? if it does thats way too much accelerator pump and primary ,metering and idle, or a combination of sorts. i would pick up an edelbrock or carter competition(same carb) 625 or so cfm. easier to adjust on car, and a lot more responsive to that engine than 750. also stock converter will drag a 305 down to that rpm no matter what, and the cam doesnt help. loss of rpm will make vacuum drop, causing your problem. also if your 750 is an edelbrock, they come rich to fit an array of engines, all of which are larger than the 305.
