93 silverado /w 350 has no power

93 silverado stepside /w 350 V8
- idles a little rough- -when in drive RPM drops to between 500 and 800 rpm ( way slower htan normal - pressing on gas pedal the truck seems to want to stall and no power/noise
difference - after a few seconds of pressing pedal, it slowly picks up speed until finally it full power restored - overall....sounds like it is starving for fuel.
any ideas? ----------------------------------------------------- users trucks from this group listed below ----------------------------------------------------- http://users.eastlink.ca/~mikemcneil/index.htm

Check the fuel pressure, if is TB it should be 10-13 psi. Make sure both injectors are working, these are basic starting points.

ended up bringing it into the garage this morning to get buddy to look at it. Raining here for the next couple of days so I can't work outside.
