badgerjfr, first welcome to TT. Second, it sounds like a fuel issue. I would start with checking the anti siphon valve then the fuel filters. There should be 2. One is inline before you get to the fuel pump, the other is in the bowl attahced to the fuel pump. I would also check the fuel pressure and flow into carb when going into gear. I hope that helps. The hardcore guys will chime in to help out with other things to check.
