Default Motor Dies?

What would cause a motor to die after the straight away...when you let off of the throttle. It is a brand new Nova N21bf, but put the clutch on it that I got with the truck (used). The motor will restart with no problem and sit and idle also. Would this be a good clutch setup I could use?

Thanks

Sounds like your high-end needle may be to lean. High-end needle takes care of just that, your high speed on a straight away. Open up the high-end a full turn (richen) and retune, turning it back in one hour at a time until you get good power and smoke.

Associated makes a good clutch, what truck do you have?

Check your fuel lines. Make sure you don't have a hole or crack. Sounds to me like you don't have good fuel pressure.

In my experience, the low speed needle is typically just a little lean when this happens. You're probably very close though. I would lean the LSN 2 hours and see what she does. You may have to raise the idle stop just slightly afterwards.

Also, Aaron has a good point to make sure your HSN is set correctly. If it's too lean, you will never get the LSN set right.
