Fullsize stalls when put in gear

When my truck is at idle and warm or cold when I put it in gear it either stalls right away or the RPM's drop very low?? 79 355 Carburated 600 CFM Mild shift kit stock torque convertor ??? Any Ideas....

Dude! I want a PITA too! Where did you get it? Is there a choice of colors?

Sounds like a vacuum leak of some sort. Check hoses and intake manifold carefully.

Take a step back. Did you recently finish some work on it?

I had the same problem on my 73 Impala, turns out I disconnected the brake vacuum booster hose from the intake manifold to the booster. DAH, ME!
