High idle and dies when put into gear

350 chevy, Edelbrock 750 Electric Choke, Competition Cam (Unsure of model, but idle has noticeable lope).

When I idle the carburator adjustment while the truck is in gear to a solid lope it idles high when in park. And, when I idle the truck in park to an acceptable level, it dies when I put it into gear. Does anyone have any suggestions, comments, or questions that would help me decide the next step?

did this prob just start out of the blue? or is this a new combo? if its a new setup i would guess its a case of too much cam not enough stall in the converter. if you could find out what cam you have and what torque converter you are running it would help.

It has been hapening since I purchased the pickup (69 Chevy). Do you have a suggestion on how to locate the cam and stall information without pulling them. Also, if I pull the cam does it have an OEM part number on it?

pull the cam gear off and look at the face of the camshaft there should be a part number on there, well typically. if there is post it and well try to identify it. it is possible the part number is on the backside of the cam, if thats the case then youll have to pull it, if its a flat tappet cam make sure you keep ther lifters mached up to the proper bores.
