to raise the idle like I said - turn the idle screw clockwise. When it idles higher, does the truck move under its own power?
Remember just make small adjustments - 1/8 turn at a time, once you set the idle screw don't touch it - this screw is rarely adjusted once you get your truck to idle properly.
Weather plays a huge role too, any significant temp differences will make huge differences in how the motor runs and idles. Example - you tune your truck to run in 40 degree temps it will run really good, but if you take those same carb settings and run your truck on a 70 degree day, it will be too lean and it will run like crap.
