Make sure you have no vacum leaks first. And your timing is correct, spark plugs, wires,cap, and rotor are all in good condition. After that run the screw in clockwise untill the engine begins to run rough, stop and back it out 1/2 turn. There is another adjustment the metering rod inside the carb, remove the top of the carb. Adjust the rod screw 3/4 of a turn (clockwise for more fuel counter clockwise for less fuel). It take alot of time, make sure you keep track of your adjustments incase you go the wrong way

Where are the fuel pumps on a 1982 ford f150

Well a 1982 model should have a carb, so there should be a mechanical fuel pump on the side of the block near the front.
Just follow the fuel line from the carb.

I have a 1982 ford van that will not shift gears when i am driving, can you tell me some reasons why this would happen? And Is there anywhere i can get a free 1982 ford econoline transmission diagram...

look down on the side and see if a vacuum hose goes into a little round diaphram.. If you find it unplug it and look to see if it got fluid in it. If it does replace the modulator. If dry make sure the linkage on the carb is hooked up correctly. This is about all you can do without replacing an internal part.
