Vacuum leak? Or if you can keep it running by raising the idle speed with the gas pedal rather than the choke, it might be a faulty fuel cut solenoid on the carb.

There might problem on idle circuit in carburetor.
First, check fuel cut solenoid valve following 60was's opinion.
Second, remove carb and clean idle passage ans slow jets using with spray carb cleanner.
But best solution is whole carb rebuilding.

my problem was that the coating on the xhoke cable was all cracked and brittle, and the cable itself was binding up.
replaced the cable, and now i keep it lubed, and no more problems

Stupid question but how long was it running before you pushed the choke in?

I think you are saying that the truck refuses to idle with the choke in. This could indicate that the Fuel Cutoff Solenoid is not functioning properly. The FSM has the steps for checking FCS function. The cause is often that the fusible link burned out.

It could also mean that the throttle linkage is out of adjustment. That is what was wrong with mine. Once I bent it properly to specification, everything was fine.

Fuel filter?
clean carb, (get can of "Cleaner" read directions, have at it
run some fuel additive (in the fuel tnak) that abreaks down H2O in the tank.
After cleaning take it on a nice drive, ask it, WILL it to idle correctly.(I beg a lot)
