Finished re-gapping the plugs, and retested starting the truck when cold. The truck starts much better (not perfect). So the truck starting when cold is better and the smell of gas is better.

When I rev the motor (upon first starting), the motor hesitates and seems to be bogged down. Once warm is seems to do OK. I guess I still have some weak power (as my first post stated). Any thoughts here?

btw - it takes 4-5 seconds for the truck to turn off when turning off the vehicle. I wouldn't say it diesels but it just keeps running.

It just feels like I'm missing something here. Lots of issues, wondering if they are all related?
