Theres many many reasons it could be idleing high.

Check the throttle return stop on your carb, it may need to be adjusted back or "down".

Check for any vacuum leaks on every hose in the engine bay, and leaks around the carbs base.

Check and if necessary adjust your idle mixture screw or "air fuel mixture screw".

If it has a weber carburetor, check to see if the throttle linkage is returning all the way. Webers tend to stick and not return completely, causing high idle. Mine was idling at like 3500rpm sometimes until i put a helper return spring on.

Awesome thanks for the info everyone!!

Dmike that was exactly the info i wanted, thank you kindly sir.

Ill get on the adjustment asap.

And it wouldnt surprise me if it was a shitty alignment. Most mechanical shops these days dont give a fuck.

I agree with loren. regardless of anything else, you put labor into the truck. The pins are for those who donated time or whatever they could.

Hope the meet was good! Has been a hectic couple of weeks so i didnt make it.

That truck is pretty damn clean dude. I paid about the same also. Same story as that-son.

Nice score.
