When you set the choke there are many adjustments, most require linkage rod binding and a choke angle guage, also there is a cold high idle setting when the choke is on, all of these adjustments are different for each carburetor number, the carb number is stamped on the carb, there are 20 or so numbers of carbs for your truck they are called calibrations, My suggestion to you is to get the number off your carb and buy a rebuild kit made by Jiffy, they are the best and provide detailed instructions for each carb number covered by the kit.

Tune ups on a regular basis are a must. A couple times a year check the plugs and replace if they are a little bit dirty. Also air filter. Keep the carb in tip top shape, tuned and rebuilt as necessary. Install an aftermarket vacuum guage in the dash where it is easily readable. They come marked with ranges to indicate good or poor mileage. It just plugs into the vacuum lines on the intake or carb. The more you keep it in the good range the better the mileage. Driving habits will be your best bet,keeping off the 4 barrel. Hope this helps.

It's either a stuck float or the choke is staying closed. If you're smelling gas, then it's probably the float. You need to rebuild the carb.
