    I HATE FORDS! I tell you, I almost started liking our '81 f-250 but we went out and looked for a Christmas tree this week...

    Try this in the right forum for a bit, if no one helps I will move it to the chevy garage...

    It has a 4 speed, and I think a 351. In first and second it is fine, but when I get to third it doesn't move. I can idle, but when I try to accelerate it chugs and is really sluggish.

    I gave up trying to drive it, and we came home. On this main road there was a huge logging truck right on my tail, and I'm only going 25km/hr of the posted 50 km/hr. I couldn't move any faster and I couldn't pull over even with my floor fullly depressing the gas pedal. I don't get it.

    I got it in second and reved the dingles out of it, then it ran okay for a bit. It was almost like something was stuck or gumed up. The automatic choke is sticking too, which is a pain.
    What a gift...we are trying to sell it and now it runs like diarehha.

    Any help?

    Your problems sound like the stuck choke.
    Is lots of black smoke coming out the exhaust when its running bad?
    Have you tried fixing or disconnecting the choke?

    No black smoke that I know of.
    I don't know anything about the choke is the thing. when i rebuilt the qjet I messed up the choke assembly on that too. Chokes don't like me.
