to test vacuum at idle I can just get a vacuum tester/gauge and put it on the vacuum advance off the base of the carb?  normal is 20lbs at idle?  And the truck will idle below 750 but super rough and lopey (sp?).

Nice looking truck. I just bought mine a couple months ago. It’s an adventure for sure.

 

A never ending one.

So drive it around, check plugs and adjust  mixture screw as necessary to get white/tan plugs?  Question though when I adjust the mixture do you need to adjust the idle speed screw as well?  In my experience when I adjust the mixture screw it either raises or lowers the idle so then I have to adjust the idle speed screw.
