Engine Problem?!?!?!?

Okay here it goes. Just recentyl my engine started dying when I stop or slow down. At first I thought it was just the idle (because I have had trouble with that before) so I adjusted that, but it still does it. So now I have figured out that it dies when I apply the brakes. I have no idea why braking would cause the engine to die. So any suggestions at all would be helpful. Thanks

This isn't uncommon at all. My 84 used to do it so I junked the Carter carburator and installed a Weber carb...problem solved.
