Scotty, I have a 1982 Ford F150 with the 4.9 l and a c4 transmission. It Idles high and when I put it into gear, the engine dies. Thoughts?

well, pray it needs fuel injection cleaning or a tune up and NOT a new torque converter or transmission rebuild job. good luck

it is carburated....

and I have a spare t-19 I am looking for a home for......:D
