OK so I got back to working on this thing. running and idling good. But can't get it to run good around 60 or above. Just bogs down after a couple of miles and have to drop it back to 3rd. Not sure if I should have the carb rebuilt or get a new one very thing else is working good

So just how hard would this be to rebuild myself. I am thinking of getting a kit. Then putting the video camera on a tripod and record how I take it apart. I feel.comfortable tearing it down and putting it back together. Its the adjustments to make the thing run right that I am clueless on.
This is all if it is the card that is causing this problem. I have never had a rig with tires this large (32") before. So this maybe the way it is. But i hope not. Really would like to highway this thing to someplaces to off road.

Well I took some pictures of the carb before I left the house today so I could ask this question. But now I see they are to large to add as an attachment. I thought that it would be a carter BBD, but it looks more like a WGD. But not totally. This is on a n 87 4.2 6 cyl. I am hoping some that really knows carbs would be able to tell me if one of those would not be able to bolt i am this motor.

I have been trying to upload a photo of the carb for a few days now and I keep getting a file failed message. Anyone know why?
