SOURCE: 1973 chevy truck vacuum diagram

Pretty sure I have the diagrams etc but they are buried away and would take a week to find.
BUT: The setup on that engine for that year is fairly uncomplicated and you could pretty much do away with all the emission controls etc and get the engine running really well. (just block off all vacuum ports on the manifold and carb except for the one to the transmission and power brake booster) I'm not really familiar with the edelbrock carb (looks like they are based on the old carter AFB carb though. I am partial to holley carbs, and the old quadrajet carbs)
What you need to check first though is your fuel pressure and delivery. You should be seeing 5-7 psi at the carb. With the fuel line disconnected, and attached to a rubber hose diverted into a container, you should see at least a gallon of fuel pumped at idle before the carb runs out of fuel. Make sure you don't have any leaks in the fuel line coming from the tank...with a pull type pump (mechanical pump on the engine) a leak often will not drip, but will allow air to be drawn into the line while running. Make sure that if your carb has a filter in the fuel inlet, it is clean. Make sure that the fuel line filter (sock) in the tank is also clean.
It's likely you have an egr valve on the manifold, If so, you can temporarily block it off with a small piece of metal from a soda can installed between the valve and the manifold. That will prevent it from working and if it has any leaks, blocking it off will eliminate it from the system. If that helps, replace the valve.
Your ignition system is fairly simple. a single 12 volt lead goes to the battery side of the distributor. You can block off the vacuum advance temporarily and just set the initial timing at about 8 degrees advanced. (depending upon fuel quality, you can go as high as 12) . The ignition module is not "testable" usually though they either work or they don't )
You do need to check the wires that attach to the pickup under the mount plate to make sure they are not partially broken and grounding when the advance moves the plate.
Back to your carburetor... If you are test driving without the air cleaner housing in place, it is possible that if there is a heat pad mounted to the underside of the hood, it can get drawn down against the carb inlet and cause problems. If the air cleaner housing is in place, make sure that the inlet door in the snorkel is opening or, disconnect the vacuum hose going to it as default on those is wide open. If you have tried everything I've outlined, you may have to go inside the carb and make sure that the power valve isn't frozen or that the float level isn't set too low.
Once you get it running right, you can begin to look for the diagrams etc you are looking for, but at least it will be running and usable.
The only other item that could give you a problem like the one you have is if the cam timing was set incorrectly at the factory (doubtful but it can happen) but I really would not worry about that just yet.
Hope something here helps!!! Good luck!

Have you checked for vacuum leaks ?

Spray a small amount of starting fluid around all suspected areas and if it revs up that's where you leak is.

Starts then stalls once in gear

The first place to check is a vacuum leak, large vacuum leak can be heard while the engine is running, smaller leaks will require a different apptoach. The easiest for the DYIer is to spray the intake and vacuum lines with a carburator cleaner, a change in the engine speed will indicate a leak. If there is no leak the vehicle will require further diagnostics.

Need to set up an evap canister in a 85 camero 350 4 barrel auto

Is this stock which would actually be a a 305 Camaro with a 4 barrel feed back Quadrajet?
Vapor line from the tank to a Tank Pressure Control Valve (small round inline valve) then to the "Tank" port on the Evap canister (they are usually marked)

The other canister port marked "Purge" goes into a Vapor Contol Valve. That Valve has three more ports. One to the carb bowl vent, manifold vacuum and to a Thermal Vacuum Switch.
The last port of the Thermal Vacuum Switch connects to port vacuum from the carburator.

How to install 1988 chevy monte carlo rochester 4 barrel carburetor

You'll need to disconnect the fuel line at the front of the carburator. Disconnect the vacuum line at the back of the carburator going to the brake booster. Label and remove the vacuum hoses. Unplug the mixture control solenoid connector, the TPS connector and the connector to the automatic choke. Unbolt the 4 13mm bolts holding the carburator to the intake and remove the carburator.

1992 Subaru Loyale - Rough idol when in gear

Since changing the motor didn't help, it makes me think the motor mounts or even possibly the transmission mount might be at fault. The engine is not actually idling rough, if it was it wouldn't care what gear your in because that has nothing to do with engine idle. The engine and trans mounts are the only components that shield the occupants of the vehicle from the engines natural harmonic resonance. If the mounts are starting to give out, there ability to dampen vibration diminishes greatly. I hope this info helps in your diagnosis...

I am going on vacation so I hope this helps,
Surely since its a car-borated engine with numerous vacuum lines, one vacuum line could be leaking causing this condition.
Setting that aside for now you could have a skewed T.C.C. valve. Thats the transmission converter clutch valve. It locks up the transmission torque converter to aid in fuel mileage at speeds above around 40 mph. The unit is normally locked out of 1st gear. When it acts up it applies at the higher speeds but doesn't disengaged. This will cause the engine to stall. The feeling to the driver is quite distinctive. The normally is a shaking or vibration felt the moment before the engine stalls, it could feel like a shutter not unlike the sensation one feels when driving a stick shift and comes to a stop in gear without depressing the clutch petal. The hole thing is controlled by the engine computer. There is a connector on the transmission which is normally square with 4 receptacles, disconnect it and drive the car as you normally would. See if it stops stalling. If so you need to replace the solenoid. Its located in the transmission under the transmission pan. This a long shot but without inspecting all the vacuum lines and numerous other sup-systems its well worth looking at a could be a fast test. Just unplug it and drive it normally
