    Default Scout cuts off in drive?

    My scout seems to idle fine but when in drive if you give it some gas it will want to cut off.Also, in park or neutral when you rev up the gas it doesnt sound as strong as it used to and you get a popping sound out the exhaust. I just replaced the spark plugs with ngk's and I have a msd ignition.76 345 auto tranny.any advice is greatly appreciated.thanks

    Sounds like a carb problem... maybe the accelerator pump that shoots a little extra gas into the system when you press on the gas pedal, or maybe the fuel filter not letting enough fuel through.

    Adjust your carb so it idles around 700-800 in park or N. 345's like AC Delco's, copper. Check your timing, may be advanced too much.
