Re: Engine dies when brakes applied
Both ideas are possible. Start with the brake booster. Does appply the brakes while the vehicle is idling affect idle quality? If there is a defect in teh booster (which runs off vacuum ) it will show up then.
If it'snot the booster, then you carb could have sediment in it or other blockage which needs cleaning out. Read up on the carter carb cleaning idle air screws, or better yet just get ambitious, buy a rebuild kit, tear it down and clean everything thoroughly..
