High HC counts are due to a rich mixture, too much fuel. How does the truck run normally? To adjust the fuel mixture at the carburetor, make sure the truck is at operating temperature. Turn the idle mixture screw clockwise until the engine starts to lag then turn the screw back just until it runs smooth. Also make sure you have fresh oil as this could cause high HC's as well since fuel gets into the oil and make sure your PCV valve is operating correctly. If you can't get it adjusted correctly, you may have to pay a shop to hook it up to the emissions machine to get the mixture correct, unfortunately.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hydro Carbons are usally from an engine missfire. It may be that it is such a sligh miss that you cannot feel it. What is your timing set at? I would try setting it at 2* advanced and see what that does for you.

Faild emissions test


the egr is usually located near the intake manifold to get down your coolant temperature flush your cooling system, get a lower temperature thermostat, and also get something to clean out the carbon out of your cylinders, a fuel system cleaner. then try it again you should have different results
