    Early Ironman

    When I pull a long hill the carb runs out of fuel. I replaced the mechanical fuel pump and it still did it. Then added an electric fuel pump and it is better but still does it. " can make it a bit further up the hill"
    Also the throttle is very touchy. Hardly have to give it any throttle to go. Sucks on bumps because then the truck bucks when my foot bounces on the pedal.
    So am thinking it is a carb adjustment issue.
    Has anyone else experienced this with a stromberg on a flathead Ford? What was the adjustment needed to fix it?
