    Stupid POS.

    Upon acceleration truck makes this giant sucking noise, dies for a second, then comes right back and drives fine. Does it on maybe 1 in 4 times I accelerate. Drives fine once it gets going. Stock 305. Going to work on it Friday. Ideas???

    Mine did that on my 86 k5 w/ a 305. The gasket between the carb and the intake was cracked and was sucking air. I got a new gasket and went ahead and rebuilt the carb. Cleared that problem right up. Also check for other vacume leaks.

    Hope this helps. I'm sure others here can help you better than I can
