What year? Some of the later q-jets had electrical stuff on them that makes them a real pain to get working properly. Also, some of the later q-jets even prior to the electrical junk didn't have accessible adjustment screws.

Can you take a picture of the carb on your truck and post it? Also list the numbers on the side of the carb (click here for help on finding the numbers and what they mean).
