Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
Try adjusting your air/fuel mixture screws. Turn them all the way in and turn them back out 1 and a half turns. This will base line you. Double check for vacuum leaks at the carb. and intake. Spray some WD 40 along the intake where it meets the heads and see if your engine idle changes. If it does, replace you intake gaskets with a good set. Replace carb. mounting gasket. Check for any unplugged vacuum ports. Once you're able to idle it down to 1000 rpm's, turn your mixture screws in until the engine stumbles and turn screws back out until the engine achieves the highest rpm and turn in again only at a 40 rpm drop.
