Question 85 Carburetor adjustment help

For the last year or so, my truck hasn't been running ideally. I have never been able to get the adjustment just right on the carb. Currently, the truck idles too high when it's first started up(cold), and then after I drive around a bit, the idle becomes too low. At stop lights, the engine will sputter a little bit when its warm, and when it's cold, the car pulls its self along too fast when my foot isn't even on the gas pedal.

Anyways, I'm just wondering what adjustments I need to do to the choke, idle speed, idle speed control, etc...

BTW my truck is an 85 2.8L V6 automatic with 4wd

Try in the 2.8L section on TRS. The 2.8L was only an option from 83-85 with that specific feed back system. With that being said, people who are verse with this 20+ year old system are going to be far and few between. The only thing I can really recommend if you want full control over your carburetor is do a duraspark swap and swap a different carburetor that will eliminate the electronic aspect of the feed back system.
