    Yes I know its for a jeep, but at least its got a Chevy drive train. Took my jeep out yesterday, and the engine is running really rough at low rpm's. Engine is a 305 out of a 78 chevy. Once its going, it seems fine, but it died twice on me during slow turns. I had the engine tuned up a few weeks ago, and up until today, it has been running perfect. Prior to the tune up, I've replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap, coil, and fuel pump.

    Only thing that happened recently was I was running the engine a little hard Saturday (higher than normal rpm's), but nothing crazy, and it drove fine after that. I looked a bit under the hood, and the vacuum hoses looked ok (all less than 6 months old), and the plug wires looked ok as well, but didn't do much more than look. I should have more time tomorrow to look at it, but would appreciate any thoughts.
