I had almost the same problem with my 89 1500! It run like it was flooding out! I went ahead and had the carbs rebuilt! With the ethanol in the fuel now a days it will clean every thing out! I even had some O rings and seals that had dissolved because of the ethanol! It wasn't cheap but it was well worth it! Runs better now than it did when I got it 2 years ago!

I took it to a out of the way shop in Evansville Indiana! I don't remember for sure on the cost! I think I had $400.00 in the carbs and a new Dunlap E3 installed!
