check for vacuum leak maybe? you might have jolted something by gassing it. the intake manifold gasket and carb base would probably be the first places to check. to see if the problem actually lies in the carb, remove the air cleaner, start the engine and squirt a little carb cleaner into the carb. (you may need someone to fire it up while you are ready with the cleaner) if you can keep it running this way, then more than likely hte pboblem is in the induction(carb, manifold, etc...) the reaeon this works is that you are adding fuel to the incoming air charge. another thing you could check would be the EGR valve. it is only supposed to open at higher rpm's to control emissions by "reburning" the exhaust. it could be stuck open, allowing exhaust gas into the engine at idle. this would lean out the mixture enough to possibly stall. hope these ideas help, they did with my idle woes! jairus
