Alright so I'm starting to lean towards a possible fuel problem now. Last night I went out and turned the idle fuel screws out a half turn each. started the truck and let it warm to operating temp. I put it in drive and I thought it was fixed. The engine didn't bog down or anything, it ran great. Then like clock work after 60 seconds it sputtered and died quickly, almost with out warning. After that I couldn't get the truck started untill about two minutes later. I'm pretty sure the engine was flooded out.

I let it sit, turned the screws back in a half turn and it started right up again. Could I be looking at a carb problem? It seems like its getting enough fuel if it flooding out. Or do I just need to keep looking for the right idle fuel mixture?
