holley carb issues


I have posted here before but its been a while. Bought a 1969 Chevy C10 a while back and I have been tinkering with it here and there. I have a holley 4 barrell (I am unsure of the specific model) with an edlbrock intake. The engine is a 350 MD out of a 73 gmc.

I'm sure someone is going to read this and say to themselves: "What a friggin idiot." But hey, the only dumb question is the one not asked. Right?

So anyways the truck runs like a dream up until i hit about 65-70 MPH. Then it starts acting like it is running out of gas. When I let off the gas a little it stops, but if I get back on it it does it again. Does the carb need any adjustment, or just a good cleaning? I will be driving the truck from Alabama up to NC soon. Most of the trip will be on I-85 and I would hate to have to drive it all the way up to NC like it is. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
