I have a 76 camaro i changed the instrument cluster case now gas gage doesnt go lower then full &parking lights come on with key

I don't know where specifically but this is definitely a wiring issue. You have three or four of them connected incorrectly and you will have to go through the harness to figure out which.

76 jeep cherokee 360. how many turns on the oxygen screw of the carburator? i can take off fine if i baby the gas but if i give it too much gas it boggs down and back fires.

Sounds like a problem with the accelerator pump or cruise circuit in the carb. The idle mixture screws only affect the idle circuit.
You start with 2 turns out then adjust it with an exhaust gas analyzer.

92 camaro with new fuel pump won't start

This does sounds like a carb issue. Like it is out of adjustment from the fuel pump finally allowing gas to flow properly to the carb. Now that it is flooded it will be harder to start due to everytime you are trying to start it it automatically floods out. If you are concenered with your mechanic take it to another shop and have them look at it.

Car cuts cuts off then won't start 1984 Camaro Berlinetta

Sounds like a fuel pump. What engine do you have? Carb or Fuel injection? I know you said you spray carb cleaner in the carb but a throttle body kind of looks like a carb. The first thing I would try would be a fuel filter. 1984 camaro right?

Your Car May have a fuel Pressure regulation Valve, take it to a shop and see if there is an easy way to check it to see if you are loseing the pressure you need to push the fuel through the lines.

85 camero z28 want crank

Try to see if you are getting fuel up to the carb by pulling of the hard line and have someone crank the car hold line away from yourself and into a bowl or cup. The fuel filter is inside the carb i belive (if its a quadrajunk) also check that. If it is fuel injected check fuel filter should be back under the car near tank discenct and see if you are getting fuel.
