    ok so the other day i ran out of gas as i was pulling into work, i filled her up then headed to the bank and any time i'd come to a stop and i was in drive it would die on me. on my way back to work i figured maybe i got some trash in the carb from it sucking the gas from the bottom of the tank so i ran it WOT all the way back to work to try and clean out the carb... well that worked but now it seems like the truck is missing and doesn't have as much getty up as it did before (which wasn't much b/c of the old tired 305)

    i'm going to go pull all my plugs and see if maybe one got fouled
    but any other suggestion would be helpfull

    oh and if you need to know what my truck is it's a 85 Jimmy with a 305 and a Edelbrock performer intake and carb (600 cfm)
