Rochester Carb ?

I have 75 Chevy with a 350 and a 4bbl Rochester carb, im having little trouble with the idling when the truck is in gear, it will idle smooth then when i put it in (D) it will idle like it wants to quit but when
in park it will idle smooth, it doesnt blow smoke out that much. Im not to familiar with Rochester Carbs so is there any adjustments need to be made to make the truck idle smooth when its in gear? :?:

Sounds like either idle mixture is in correct or you may have a small vacum leak too. Also check idle speed as it should be around 550 -600 RPM or so in gear (about 750-800rpm in neutral)

The one on the drivers side is your idle and there are actually two on the passenger side one to set the choke pull-off (top) and one at the bottom to set your fast idle. But the two on the base of the carb is your air mixture.

When i drive it and shut off the ignition the engine will bog down, it should just shut rite off without making any noise when you shut off the ignition. Could that to be carb related also?

That is what they call deiseling,when the motor wants to keep running after the key has been turned off.
This is usually caused by to fast of an idle or bad ignition timing,try checking the timing first...
