    i got a 305 from a 79 caprice in my 54 chevy truck. the thing will idle fine until i put it in gear. i have my idle ste around 1100 rpm.
    the motor:
    305, .030 over
    10:1 flat tops
    port and polished 327 heads
    stock bottom end
    comp 280 hydraulic cam and double springs
    600 edelbrock carb
    edelbrock performer rpm intake
    points ignition
    th350 trans, stock w/ no stall yet

    runs fine at idle, runs fine WFO, just won't idle in drive or reverse. what's the chances of it being the stall?
    thanks,
    evan:doah:
