Well, I think I got the truck running right now. I locked the choke plate fully open and it runs great, starts right up and runs out good. I still need to adjust the idle, and I looked at my emissions lable and it says to adjust the idle/throttle stop screw. First of all, which screw is that? I am thinking it is the one on the passenger side of the carb, under the choke assembly, am I right? And second, what it the chain/bead thing connected with the throttle cable on the drivers side of the carb? Does it need to be adjusted? I didnt change it at all when I rebuilt the carb.

The throttle stop screw is either: sticking thru a boss on the side of the carb with the tip pressing against a flat on the throttle arm when it closes, or; sticking thru a flat on the throttle arm pressing against a boss on the carb. The bead chain is probably for the cruise servo cable, or maybe a transmission kickdown (automatic only).
