    hi! i'm an italian boy i have a wonderful silverado k5 '81 but it has a problem.
    my k5 lost power in acceleration, i checked everything and i changed the mechanical fuel pomp 'cause it was broken.
    now is better but it don't run well.
    my carb is an original rochester maybe little old and exaust but i think it still is good.

    thanks for the answer!
    the filter are cleaned but we realized the "canister" for the fuel vapour recycle breathe in fuel and not vapour and also there isn't the water's thermostat.
    so maybe in winter the problem become most hard...or not?
    i suppose
    thanks
