On a side note, I pulled the quadrajet and lowered the float and cleaned up the carb in hopes we could avoid buying a new carb and intake right now. I also disconnected all the vacuum lines and plugged them off as there were some broken fittings and things I don't want to deal with right now.
Well, the truck runs ten times better now but when I took it for a test drive it didn't want to shift out of first gear, when it finally did it SLAMMED into the next gear.
I looked at the linkage and my little brother (15 soon to be 16 y.o.) forgot to hook up the tv cable. DOH!!!
I hooked it up and it's running GREAT now!!!!
